Description Alexandre Oliva 2005-05-31 01:18:48 EDT
Description of problem:
After formatting the root filesystem, mdadmLine calls lookup_raid_device, but that fails because existing raid devices aren't registered.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC4-re0530.1

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Have an already-installed box with existing raid devices, used as physical volumes or direct filesystems
2.Try to run a kickstart install creating say a new logical volume for the root device
  
Actual results:
Anaconda backtraces after formatting the root filesystem, while generating mdadm.conf

Expected results:
This worked before
