Boot with the 'nodmraid' option at the boot: prompt and report what happens.

> Boot with the 'nodmraid' option at the boot: prompt and report what happens.

I tried before try the 'nodmraid' option, to set up with FC5.
And just after the choice of the language, I've got this warning:
"La table de partition du périférique sda est illisible. Elle doit être
initialisée pour créer de nouvelle partitions. Cette initialisation provoquera
la perte de TOUTES LES DONNEES contenues sur ce disque.

Cette opération annulera tout choix d'installation précédent précisant les
disques durs qui ne doivent pas être pris en compte.
Voulez-vous initialiser ce disque et, ce faisant, effacer TOUTES LES DONNEES ?"

Ok, it is French, I will try to explain:
"The periferic partition table is unreadable. It must be initialised to create
new partition. With this procedure you will lose all your data in this disk.
This operation will cancelled all other choice of installation made before which
specified the hard drive which dont need to use.
Do you want to initialised this disk and, lose all your data"

So I choose YES, and I could set up FC5, but after the installation, when my
server was stopping in the loading of FC5 (just after the "bluetooth->ok"
anyway, without raid I've always got this error with FC5, I dont know why.

So I tried the 'nodmraid' option and everything is OK, I could start FC6.
But the Raid1 is not working

I dont understand everything, but is it a solution for the problem ? (post 17

Comment 6 Joel Andres Granados 2008-04-24 14:08:25 UTC
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.
