Package: partman-auto
Severity: normal

Version: not sure! It's the version I got by downloading:

I have two disks specified in partman-auto/disk, but only the first disk
gets partitioned. Subsequently the attempt to set up RAID fails with:
  An unexpected error occurred while setting up a preseeded RAID

The error is:
  partman-auto-raid: mdadm: Cannot open /dev/discs/disc1/part1: No such
  file or directory

Examining the system at this point, I see that it has automatically
partitioned /dev/discs/disc0/disc but not partitioned
/dev/discs/disc1/disc at all. I have checked and fdisk is happy to fdisk
both /dev/discs/disc0/disc and /dev/discs/disc1/disc manually.

My preseeding is as follows (identical to the manual):

d-i partman-auto/method string raid
d-i partman-auto/disk string /dev/discs/disc0/disc /dev/discs/disk1/disc

d-i partman-auto/expert_recipe string \
        multiraid :: \
                1000 5000 4000 raid \
                        $primary{ } method{ raid } \
                . \
                64 512 300% raid \
                        method{ raid } \
                . \
                500 10000 1000000000 raid \
                        method{ raid } \

                /dev/discs/disc0/part5#/dev/discs/disc1/part5 \
        . \
        0 2 0 ext3 /home \

Package: partman-auto

It would help if I spelt disk disc in the second disk specified in
partman-auto/disk. This fixed the problem.
