Description Robert B. Westwater 1999-10-29 11:15:11 EDT
Using two scsi drives as Raid 0. Installer does not detect
the md0 raid array. The partitions promptly get corrupted,
and I have to run fsck manually to save them.
The md0 is made from /dev/sda1 & sda2, and are mounted as
raiddev /dev/md0
	raid-level		0
	nr-raid-disks		2
	nr-spare-disks		0
	chunk-size		4
	persistent-superblock 	1
	device			/dev/sda1
	raid-disk		0
	device			/dev/sdb1
	raid-disk		1
Comment 1 Jay Turner 1999-11-30 10:55:59 EST
Upgrading of a RAID array is not a supported feature in 6.1 and therefore this
is not a bug.  We are adding support for upgrading RAID arrays in the next

This probable can be prevented if the partition is changed to type "fd" using
fdisk, afterwords you can run the upgrade ok?
