Note that this LVM on RAID1 setup was created by the FC5 anaconda installer, and
I haven't touched it since.

Didn't know that BZ had such a problem IDing text files. Sorry for the spam.

Does booting with 'linux nodmraid' help?
Comment 8 Andrew Gilmore 2006-11-06 13:43:54 EST
Away from the box for a week, sorry. Will test Monday, November 13.
Comment 9 Andrew Gilmore 2006-11-13 17:56:47 EST
booting with linux nodmraid allowed the install to continue.

Thanks for the tip. Probably ought to have a good list of bootloader commands to
try with install failures linked to the CommonBugs page.

I did get an error about the MBR not being suitable for bootloader install. Not
sure what that was about.

There is a bug where the dmraid stuff just blocks.  This bug has not been solved
yet and we are still working to fix it.   However there is a work around.  If
you use nodmraid, the installer will ignore/skip the dmraid stuff allowing the
install to finish.  This is a workaround and does not fix the problem.
There is a long list of bugs that are filed against this problem.  This bug is
one of them.  We have decided to close all the related nodmraid bugs and leave
just one open that will represent all of the others.  So this bug will be duped
for this reason.
