Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 966162
fedora-dmraid-activate shouldn't tell kpartx to use a partition delimiter
Last modified: 2013-05-24 16:49:10 EDT
Description of problem:
Everything is using kpartx logic of "use 'p' delimiter IFF the disk map name ends with a digit", so none of the core tools, &c should be passing -p p explicitly to force the delimiter from kpartx.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot a system with a valid dmraid configuration containing one or more partitions
2. observe the dm map names of the partitions
This bug is preventing any installation of Fedora 19 onto dmraid sets with preexisting partitions.
Discussed at 2013-05-22 blocker review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-blocker-review/2013-05-22/f19beta-blocker-review-8.2013-05-22-16.07.html . Accepted as a blocker per criterion "The installer must be able to detect and install to hardware or firmware RAID storage devices". We are working on fixing this ATM.
