Description jmccann 2003-04-09 21:49:59 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4a) Gecko/20030401

Description of problem:
It seems that kickstart won't install swap on a RAID1 metadevice.

The installer says something like "need two devices for mirror" and then reboots.

I got this error message with 8.0 too but it continued with the install.

A fault tolerant system should have swap on a mirror.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install swap on a RAID1 device during KS

Actual Results:  reboots

Expected Results:  Works.

Sensitive information has been removed fron ks.cfg.

Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2003-04-11 17:03:15 UTC
You need to specify a mount point of 'swap', ie:

  raid --level=1 --device=md0 --fstype swap raid.01 raid.02

should be:

  raid swap --level=1 --device=md0 --fstype swap raid.01 raid.02

I'll add some sanity checking for the mount point when we parse the ks.cfg.

Sorry to comment on a closed bug.  Thanks for the fix!  However, the ks.cfg file
came directly from redhat-config-kickstart.  So, maybe that has a bug?
