Description Remi Gauvin 2006-06-18 04:41:51 UTC
Description of problem:

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

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Partition a hard drive with an Autodetect Raid partion type
2. mdadm --create --level 1 -n 2 /dev/md0 /dev/sda missing
3. Boot with Fedora CD/DVD and try to install
Actual results:

Fedora does not detect the MD device, nor does it allow you to create one like
it, since Anaconda doesn't support the "missing" device

Expected results:
Autodetect and start the MD device, allow installation to proceed on the MD device.

Additional info:

I even tried switching to console before installation begins and ativate the the
md array myself with mdadm --assemble /dev/md0 /dev/sda1, But the partitioning
part of installation still refused to acknowledge the md device

Installation to degraded arrays is not supported
