In disk druid,
(1) clear all partitions
(2) create /boot
(3) make two raid partitions
(4) make a raid1 device, format as LVM
(5) edit free space and format as LVM

Wasnt there also part of this that required the last partition being created to
fail to be allocated due to the wierd cylinder roundoff error?
Probably, but I was getting that error by simply editing free space into a
It was only when I first set up lvm-on-raid and then edited free space into an
LVM partition that I got the traceback to follow the "cylinder boundary" error
This is something I cannot reliable reproduce. If you have a particular
machine/hard drive combination that will do this I can take a look.
BTW the LVM and RAID stuff are a red herring as far as I can tell. Its more
related to something in parted that gets confused about partition offsets and
tells us there is a range of cylinders free and yet if you ask for that range it
reports a problem.
Closing until we get a reliable reproducer.
