Description Alan Martello 2005-09-18 16:40:58 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050716 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
Using graphical installation on a system with two 80GB hard drives intended to run as RAID1. Ran Disk Druid in manual mode and setup partitions as described here http://aplawrence.com/Linux/lvm.html. After it created the SW Raid partition, an error was generated indicating that the new partition would not be recognized until after a reboot. I said ignore and the installer crashed.

Upon reboot, one of the drives correctly had SW Raid partitions. Went through the entire process again, and again, after creating the SW Raid partitions on the other drive, an error was generated indicating the new partition would not be recognized until after a reboot. I said ignore again and the installer crashed.

Upon reboot, manually enterred all information into Disk Druid a third time, everything ran fine, assumedly since the SW Raid partitions were already created.

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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure 2 disks with 3 partitions each (/boot, swap and /) where /boot and / are setup for sw mirroring. Also / is setup using LVM on top of SW mirroring

2. Crashes after warning about new partitions created and ignoring need to reboot.

3. Repeat step 1

4. Crashes a second time after warning about new partitions created and ignoring need to reboot.

5. Repeat step 1

6. Installation proceeds fine.

Expected Results:  Should have either
A) worked without reboot or
B) told me to reboot after saving a config file so I would not have to enter the same data 3 times to get it to work
