Description of problem:
I created my software raid configuration before running the install. I created
root as raid with 128KB chunk size. Somewhere in the install process it was
decided that I would prefer 64KB as the chunk size.
As a temporary solution can you tell me how to prevent this from happening?
Thanks in advance (TIA),
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a software raid configuration (Raid0) prior to performing the install.
2. The choice of chunk size in your raidtab file will be set to 64KB regardless.
Actual Results: I observed that Anaconda does not support chunk sizes other
Expected Results: Allow me to use pre-configured software RAID0 configurations.
Did you recreate the raid or just choose the reformat the existing raid device?
During the install process my exising raid was detected and I chose to not
reformat the raid device.
With the GUI install there is no way that I know of to allow the install
process to create the raid device and yet still be able to choose your own
chunk size from within the install procedure.
Aha, I see what's going on.
Fixed in CVS
Mass-closing lots of old bugs which are in MODIFIED (and thus presumed to be
fixed). If any of these are still a problem, please reopen or file a new bug
