Description H. Peter Anvin 2004-05-03 13:41:12 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.6)

Description of problem:
It would be nice if it was possible to create RAID-6 partitions during
install.  RAID-6 is currently classified as experimental, but feedback
so far has been that it appears very stable, and it provides a higher
level of data integrity than RAID-5.

The only way to get RAID-6 past experimental is for enough people to
test it out, and that is after all to some degree what Fedora is about...

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to create a RAID-6 partition during install.

Too late to add it for FC2, targeting for FC3
Comment 2 Chris Ricker 2004-05-18 11:54:12 EDT
I'd like to see RAID-6 support in anaconda as well....
