Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 178103
Hard drives automagically become /dev/mapper/pdc_jgobbledygook
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:21 EST
Description of problem:
Installing x86_64 version of FC5-Test2 on ASUS K8V-SE Deluxe motherboard (AMD64,
sata_via, 2 identical 120 GB SATA drives) is not possible because the drives are
automatically made a part of a dm_raid (I think) that begins with
mapper/pdc_j... Attempting to install to this "device" looks like it works until
you try to reboot, but it won't work. I have tried partitioning/formatting the
disks manually first but the installer ignores existing partitions.
Anaconda will not acknowledge that /dev/sda and /dev/sdb exist nor allow you to
partition or use them.
Can you run the installer again, but pass the 'nodmraid' option at the installer
Will do so as soon as possible.
If it stays like this for GOLD, please document in RELEASE-NOTES, thanks.
'nodmraid' works. Thanks!
Fixed in CVS
