The error is below:
I´m trying to install Debian on my server.
Some hardware descriptions:
- Inel Xeon processor
- 03:01.0 RAID bus controller: Adaptec (formerly DPT) SmartRAID V Controller (rev 01)
There is configured by hardware one RAID 5 on four scsi disks of 73GB.
I tryed with Lenny and Squeeze versions and both presented the same error when the install try to install grub:
main-menu: INFO: Falling back to the package description for auto-install
main-menu: INFO: Falling back to the package description for ai-choosers
main-menu: INFO: Menu item 'grub-installer' selected
grub-installer: info: architecture: i386/generic
main-menu: WARNING **: Configuring 'grub-installer' failed with error code 1
main-menu: WARNING **: Menu item 'grub-installer' failed.
The disk partitioner find the array on /dev/i2o/hdax depending of my partition table, I guess that my array should be
on /dev/sdax, my partition table is below:
/boot - primary partition 200MB (ext3) - flag boot on
/ - lvm 30GB (ext3)
/var/log - lvm 20GB (ext3)
/var - lvm 150GB (ext3)
swap - lvm 2GB (linux swap)
This problem is in the kernel that don´t load by default i2o drivers?
PS: I installed Ubuntu Server 9.10 and it work fine, the grub was installed with no problems.
Question: There is a bug with Debian installer when work with Adaptec controllers? I´m looking for solutions but
I not found one yet.
Thanks for attention,
Someone face this same problem and could help me?
I still search one solution.
