Description Robert B. Westwater 1999-10-29 15:15:11 UTC
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 15:55:59 UTC
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

Comment 2 Robert B. Westwater 2000-02-04 17:40:59 UTC
This probable can be prevented if the partition is changed to type "fd" using
fdisk, afterwords you can run the upgrade ok?
