Description Alexander Holler 2009-02-12 13:05:27 EST
Description of problem:

I've just installed fc10 x86_64 on a dmraid-raid1-partition using a netinstall. After the installation the system started without dmraid, so it destroyed the raid. I've tried to build a working initrd using mkinitrd, but mkinitrd just builded an initrd without dmraid. The raid-hw is a VIA VT6420 but I assume this is not important. The entry for the root-partiton in /etc/fstab used an UUID.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC 10 into a dmraid-partition
2. Boot the freshly installed system
3. Type mount in a session
Actual results:
A plain partition is mounted, the raid destroyed.

Expected results:
A dmraid partition should be mounted

Additional info:
The partition onto which I installed was formatted with ext4.
Bug 478355 is about mdraid and not about dmraid or an installation.
Bug 484120 is about a failed post-installation but not about mkinitrd.
Comment 1 Hans de Goede 2009-02-12 13:15:00 EST
This is a known issue, please restart the installer in rescue mode, then update mkinitrd to this version:

(which is on its way to updates testing), regenerate your initrd and then things should work.

For more details on how to do this see bug 476818.
