Description Alexandre Oliva 2006-08-04 12:27:43 EDT
Description of problem:
I upgraded my raid 5 physical volumes to raid 6.  They contain non-essential
filesystems that I could configure post install, but ideally the installer
should not simply discard them and then complain that it can't bring up the
volume group that contains them, so it can't set up the filesystems in them.

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

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a raid 6 device
2.Start the installer
Actual results:
It logs on VT3 that it doesn't support raid 6 and ignores the device, so volume
groups containing them can't be brought up

Expected results:
Even if it does not support raid 6 in the GUI, it should be able to trivially
support the reuse of such devices in existing volume groups, since it doesn't
even have to deal with them other than bringing them up.

anaconda supports raid6, but the module name changed so we didn't load it and
then notice so don't support raid6 :)

Adjusted the module list
