Yes, I get one step forward ("Muehsam ernaehrt sich das
Eichhoernchen") - now the installation of grub/lilo fails.
GRUB message on vt3:
/dev/md0 does not have any corresponding BIOS drive.
An installation step failed. (...)
failing step is: Install the LILO boot loader on a hard disk.
Both / on XFS and / on EXT3 give this error.
Note 1: The progress bar "Starting up the partitioner" hangs
at 55% ("Please wait...") while the RAIDs are synchronising.
Because this can take several (e.g. 30) minutes, it would
be nice to communicate that fact to the user.
Note 2: With linux26 I get two errors: First the os-prober
hangs (progress bar at 10%, I just killed the bastard),
after grub install fails fatally, I get an endless loop
"Trying to enable the frame buffer..." with a fancy flashing
screen. Uhu, the 70s are back!
I'm going to try this again with 2.4.
