Bug#282588: RAID-Installation failed
I just installed a machine with the most recent installation
floppy set (continuing with ftp.de.debian.org as the online
I was quite happy to see that the installer supports the
configuration of software RAID devices from the first installation and
made use of it. But then the auto-installed 2.4 kernel did not boot
because it did not know how to treat RAID partitions. RAID is
obviously not compiled into the kernel. Since at this stage of
installation it is not possible to modify the ramdisk, I had to
completely restart the installation.
Therefore I propose one of three solutions:
- Print a warning that the system can't boot from RAID with
- Have the maintainer of the kernel packages compile them with
RAID built in
- Include the raid modules in the initial ramdisk.
