Bug#307470: Failed to setup RAID with netinstaller
Version: included in netinst,iso
During the installation I'm offered to partition the host; I have two hard
drives installed, which shall become RAID1 system partitions, therefore I
thought to create the following HD layout (for each disk):
3. RAID1 partition
within the RAID1 partition I wanted to create separate paritions for /,
/var and /tmp.
However, the partitioner does not create any parition table within the
md-device, hence, to create more than one partition in it fails. However,
if you choose to let the partitioner automatically create an layout in the
md-device, it creates multiple partitions ;-)
I would say that the bug is that you cannot partition md-devices.
I also tried to put an LVM onto the RAID1 device, but that failed with the
error that there is no unused partition.
Also, when there are the md- partitions, they are not displayed when you
reboot, but only after you select to create a RAID device, which fails,
because there is no unused partition left. When you return to the main
screen, the RAID device is displayed.
