Okay, so.. you've got dmraid on.. sata_nv? Can you give us a bit more info about
the RAID set up - number / type of disks, controller, etc?

Comment 3 David Nielsen 2007-05-24 04:18:46 UTC
mdraid not dmraid Woods. it's an nforce3 SATA controller with dmraid
capabilities turned off (since historically Linux has sucked on that, I plan to
change it back for F8 to break it in interesting ways). 

2 WDC WD4000YR-01P harddrives

/boot on RAID1
/, /home and SWAP on LVM on top of a RAID0

Comment 4 Will Woods 2007-05-24 04:53:29 UTC
ah, sorry.. it's late and I'm mixing up mdraid and dmraid again. 

according to pjones there was a bug in the mdraid metadata finding stuff that
should be fixed in anaconda, so hopefully the next rawhide should be

I managed to pull off an mdraid upgrade yesterday without a problem, whereas I
couldn't a few days ago, so at least we're closer...

Comment 6 Jeremy Katz 2007-05-24 15:06:44 UTC
We're trying to start the device md-1 which is weird.  What's the output of
mdadm -E for /dev/sda2, /dev/sdb1 and /dev/sdb2?

Comment 7 Jarod Wilson 2007-05-24 22:24:51 UTC
Just set up a box with a pair of WD 120G ATA drives, 100M software raid1 /boot,
the rest software raid0 with lvm atop it, featuring /, /home and swap. No more
explodeyness, only oddity was grub needing to be reinstalled rather than
upgrading the existing config for some reason.

Comment 8 David Nielsen 2007-05-25 16:05:51 UTC
Works for me as of F7 RC2.
