Description Simon Jones 2004-08-10 20:47:38 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7)

Description of problem:
When installing FC3T1 and using software raid1, if the installer
finishes before the mirror sync's, then when the reboot occurs the
system will fail to boot.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start install of FC3 T1, create a big software raid 1 array
2.let installer install a typical 2.2G install
3.let the installer reboot as soon as installed

Actual Results:  System refuses to boot

Expected Results:  System would boot normally.

Additional info:

Can anaconda be modified to know when the raid is sync'd and then
allow a reboot, i.e at the end of the install put a notice on screen
showing the raid is syncing.. please wait...

Work around is to look at the log as it installs and wait for the
mirror to be synced then reboot.

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2004-08-10 21:15:49 UTC
This is a kernel bug.  The kernel shouldn't mark an array as finished
syncing on boot if it's not actually.
