Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 495581
Unable to install with raid1 + LVM Config
Last modified: 2009-04-28 17:19:46 EDT
Description of problem:
I would like to install my pc as follow :
Rawhide (ie Fedora 11)
2 hard-drive 1To
I wan't to mirror the whole thing and use lvm over it to be able to extend easily my partitions.
I wish to use ext4 when possible
I understand that at this time :
- /boot can't be on lvm
- /boot can't be ext4
So I would like to create :
/dev/md0 containing /boot as ext4
/dev/md1 containing a LVM setup with some free space
partitions in /dev/md1 LVM:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I tried several rawhide x64 boot.iso
I had lot of problems with anaconda exceptions (usb card reader, exception while seting up partitions,...)
These exceptions are fixed and no longer occurs
Other bugs were fixed too.
the installation process run though the end before reboot ok
reboot isn't ok

Are you still seeing this problem? If so, could you attach the exact error message you are seeing? Thanks.
No, I could install succesfully with boot.iso 20090424 on 20090426 with this setup.
I updated the other bugs. didn't have time for this one.
install logs are available in comment from bug 495580
I'm closing it.
