Package: partman
Version: 63
Severity: important

As the title says, an install on my XServe G5, with two brand new 320GB sata
disks, fails. I can manually setup the RAID partitions, but when i go into the
raid tool, it tells me something about the RAID flag not being found or

This seems strange, as parted/mac has all the needed support for the RAID flag : 

static int
_rawpart_is_raid (MacRawPartition* raw_part)
        if (strcmp (raw_part->type, "Linux_RAID") != 0)
                return 0;
        return 1;
static int
mac_partition_set_flag (PedPartition* part, PedPartitionFlag flag, int state)
        case PED_PARTITION_RAID:
                mac_data->is_raid = state;
                if (state)
                        strcpy (mac_data->system_name, "Linux_RAID");
                        mac_partition_set_system (part, part->fs_type);
                return 1;
static int
mac_partition_get_flag (const PedPartition* part, PedPartitionFlag flag)
        case PED_PARTITION_RAID:
                return mac_data->is_raid;
static int
mac_partition_is_flag_available (
        const PedPartition* part, PedPartitionFlag flag)
        case PED_PARTITION_RAID:

Since this is consistently ok, i suppose there is some kind of brokeness in
the partman support.

If needed, i can provide full logs.

Closing this bug report as the issue was traced to a bug in parted 
(#392767) which has been solved in the mean time.

If there is still a remaining issue with RAID flags, that is probably 
already covered by #397973, and so this can still be closed as it is a
