Software RAID, LVM, and LILO on amd64 sarge
After discovering that the amd64 Debian Installer netinst images have
been broken recently, I retreated to sarge.
At first glance, I was having pretty good luck, but I ran into a snag
during boot loader installation.
During partitioning, I set up both software RAID1 and LVM. After
partitioning, I tried to install LILO in the MBR on /dev/md0, but it
didn't work. I tried advanced mode and tried /dev/mapper/vg-root as
an installation target, but that was invalid, as well.
I've seen posts suggesting that this ought to work without a non-LVM /
boot partition, so I'm wondering whether this is an issue that's
peculiar to sarge on amd64?
