Description Chris Kloiber 2006-01-17 15:26:37 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.
Comment 1 David Cantrell 2006-01-17 15:42:35 EST
Can you run the installer again, but pass the 'nodmraid' option at the installer
boot prompt?
Comment 2 Chris Kloiber 2006-01-18 14:13:38 EST
Will do so as soon as possible. 

If it stays like this for GOLD, please document in RELEASE-NOTES, thanks. 
Comment 3 Chris Kloiber 2006-01-18 21:14:56 EST
'nodmraid' works. Thanks!
