I think the component should be anaconda :)  Changing.

Are you still seeing this problem with one of the final test candidates?  If so, please attach the complete /tmp/anaconda-tb-* file to this bug report.  Thanks.

Actually, in the recent versions,there is no RAID in the device type list.

Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2013-01-07 17:44:33 UTC
While RAID is not listed in the initial combo box for picking whether you want to go into the custom partitioning, I do see it as an option for the root device's device type as long as I have at least two disks included in the installation.  How many disks do you have?  Also, I'm not seeing any crashes.

Hi Chris,it's my fault.When I did one disk install,and had not seen RAID in the type list as in the previous editions,I just ignored this testcase .
As you say,there is no crashes.However,the"Error detection","Distributed","Redudant"in the MANUAL PARTITIONING  can not be choosed.Is that OK?

Comment 6 Chris Lumens 2013-01-08 19:01:01 UTC
The presence of those options is dictated by the number of disks you have selected for installation.  For instance, we won't let you select a RAID level that requires four disks if you only have two, or two disks if you only have one.  My guess is that's what you are seeing here.
