Description Alexandre Oliva 2000-10-18 09:27:31 UTC
After creating two 1-Gb raid partitions in disks sda and sdb (one in each),
I chose to create a Linux filesystem out of them, to be mounted in `/l',
and named the device /dev/raid/l (I've also tried /dev/raid-l, without
success).  (Actually, I have created more than one partition in one of the
disks, in one of my attempts, but I *think* I've also tried 1 parition per
disk before giving up and setting up raid by hand after a regular

All was fine until the installation got to the point of creating the actual
filesystems, just before packages start to be installed: I got an exception
from the Python interpreter, and the installation was aborted.

Please let me know if you need further information to duplicate the problem.

could you attach the text of the anaconda exception to this report ...? that
would be helpful ... :)

That would be hard.  I have already managed to create some raid devices, and I'd
rather not mess up with them.  Since I don't have any free disk space, and the
problem shows up quite late in the installation process, I fear changes in the
partition table may make it to disk before the failure, destroying the data I
already have.  Sorry, I should have noted the error message when I first got it,
but I thought it would have been easy to duplicate, since I could do it so many
times :-)

If you ever have a problem like this again please reopen this bug. We have not
seen this behaviour in our testing so perhaps it was something specific to your
