Bug#392764: Can't reproduce on PowerStack, MAC partition issue only?


I tried to reproduce this bug on my Motorola PowerStack II (PPC prep),
but did not succeed. I've used the d-i daily build from 2007-01-19,
netinst iso and booted the netinst kernel over TFTP (yes, I know this
isn't supported, but my bandwith doesn't allow a full netinstall).

During manual partitioning, I created two RAID partitions:

ut@pleddis:~$ cat /proc/partitions 
major minor  #blocks  name

   8     0    8891556 sda
   8     1      16033 sda1
   8     2     489982 sda2
   8     3    4184932 sda3
   8     4    4192965 sda4
   9     0    4184832 md0

Which is a brain-dead setup with only one disk and a RAID1 on two partitions:

ut@pleddis:~$ df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/md0              4.0G  390M  3.4G  11% /
tmpfs                  62M     0   62M   0% /lib/init/rw
udev                   10M   44K   10M   1% /dev
tmpfs                  62M     0   62M   0% /dev/shm

I haven't seen any failure, which suggests that the problem only shows up
on MAC partition types (the PowerStack uses PC-style partitions).

Sorry, but it looks like I don't have the hardware to track this down,

HTH anyway,
