Description of problem:
When attempting to install with / on a RAID device, the installer got an exception, crashed, and rebooted.
Exception exceptions.KeyError:0 in <bound bethod RAIDDEVICE.__del__ of <fssetAIDDevice instance at 0xb74d484c>> ignored
The configuration was:
1. Two identical Seagate 80 GB disks
2. /boot was a 100 MB partition on /dev/hda1
3. /tmp was a 100 MB partition on /dev/hdc1
4. Both disks had a 150 MB partition on /dev/hd[ac]2
5. Rest of both disks (about 79 GB) were a software RAID 1 partition
set up using the installer as /dev/md0
The partitioning and formatting went well, and files were written to the /boot partition, but when it started on the / partition it crashed the installer.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC3 installation CD's
Steps to Reproduce:
1. See above
Actual Results: The installer crashed
Expected Results: It should have installed Linux on the / RAID 1 partition.
I was never able to get this to work. Instead I bought a third disk, installed Linux on that, then used mdadm to create a RAID 1 disk with the original two disks.
Can you provide the full traceback?
Unfortunately I can't - the installer crashed and rebooted. Since there was no
file system, there were no files left behind. (Plus I ran it again, which
reformatted the disks.) Sorry.
