raid1 install fails
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:19 EST
Description of problem:
raid1 install fails on FC4. take 2 drives (pata, sata, doesnt matter)
partition them both like:
hda2: swap 1gb
md0 = hda1+hdc1 = /boot
md1 = hda2+hdc2 = swap
md2 = hda3+hdc3 = /
installer goes through all the motions up till reboot. after reboot, kernel is
unable to mount root (eg, unable to mount device 9,2)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.follow steps above
unable to mount root device 9,2
it should work
by booting into linux rescue, and rebuilding the initrd, it fixes the problem.
so it seems the fedora installer is making an incorrect initrd for raid1.
looks like this is fixed in FC5T1.
