Description Geir Thomassen 2001-06-13 08:34:00 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686; en-US; rv:0.9.1)

Description of problem:
Disk druid (anaconda) need to add the "lba32" option instead of the
"linear" option to lilo.conf when making a bootable raid array above cyl
1024. The result is that lilo fails to install, and the system won't boot.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create two partitions on two discs above cyl 1024
2.Add these two partitions to a raid 1 array (eg. md0) and assign this
array to / (root)
3.Continue installation, you will get an error message when anaconda tries
to run lilo.
4. Restart ....

Actual Results:  Lilo can't boot the system since lilo.conf was created
with the linear option instead of lba32. You have to boot on a floppy, and
fix lilo.conf.

The entire partitioning subsystem is being rewritten, so this bug should not
appear in the future.
