Comment 1 Brent Fox 2003-07-23 17:39:32 EDT
I think this report is about anaconda, not redhat-config-kickstart.  Changing
component to anaconda.
Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2003-08-13 15:22:07 EDT
This kickstart has numerous errors in it.  If it is exactly as
redhat-config-kickstart created it then there are bugs in redhat-config-kickstart.

First - the lines starting with 'part raid ' are hosed. They should not have the
'raid' in them.

Second - the line:

part raid  --level=RAID1  --device=md0  --fstype swap raid.01 raid.02

should be:

part swap  --level=RAID1  --device=md0  --fstype swap raid.01 raid.02
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2003-09-15 14:11:55 EDT
The redhat-config-kickstart raid code should be fixed in
redhat-config-kickstart-2.3.18-1 in Rawhide.
