Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 6902
GUI install will try to create ilegal partitions on mylex raid
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:52 EDT
I just tried my first install on a box with a Mylex
Acceleraid 200 controller. The Mylex docs say the driver
supports partitions p1 - p7, i.e. /dev/rd/c0d0p1 through
/dev/rd/c0d0p7. I tried to install with:
This is only 5 partitions, yet disk druid created them as
I don't know why disk druid likes to create just 1 primary
and everything else in an extended partition starting at
partition 5, but it breaks the mylex raid driver. This
resulted in my /var partition not existing.
I was able to get around this by switching to virtual
console 2, running fdisk by hand, then rebooting and letting
the GUI disk druid use the existing partitions.
This issue has been assigned to a developer for further action.
The fdisk will be available via the GUI in future release to handle this problem
