Description Ghassan Tchelepi 2006-05-20 06:17:09 EDT
Description of problem: I was trying to upgrade from FC4 to FC5 using FC5 ISO DVD release. My FC4 is/was a RAID 0 install (worked great), the FC5 upgrade did not recognize the current FC4 RAID 0 install. It appears that FC5 was never tested for an upgrade from FC4 RAID0 install. So I gave up on the upgrade hoping to install FC5 but that did not work either (errno 256). Had to revert back to FC4. I saw reports of errno 256 being reported, but it was not for an upgrade from FC4 RAID0 install Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Steps to Reproduce: 1. FC4 RAID0 functioning install 2. Boot using FC5 ISO DVD release 3. Actual results: Does not recognize FC4 RAID0 install Expected results: Upgrade to FC5 Additional info:

See also bug 186312 I had reported the problem differently in bug 189971, see that bug for history of solution. Solution is to disconnect all drives other than CD and raid disks from system. This means firewire, USB, etc. These other drives confuse anaconda and the result is that anaconda cannot see already configured raid arrays.

Hi Folks, The solution in bug 189971 is not working for me. I've got software raid0 set up on two sata drives. Fedora 4 rescue can see the partitions, but fedora 5 install and rescue can't. /proc/partitions shows: major minor #blocks name 7 0 70420 loop0 8 0 195360984 sda 8 16 195360984 sdb 253 0 195312500 dm-0 No extra drives attached, and I've turned just about everything off in the bios, still no luck.
Comment 3 Ghassan Tchelepi 2006-07-07 11:10:18 EDT
The only drives attached to my system (two SATA drive with FC4 raid0, One CD-ROM, and One Floppy) The solution in bug 189971 does solve the problem.
