This was an experiment with Software RAID. Two drives, attached to a
Promise PCI controller as /dev/hde and /dev/hdg, were detected and
partitioned with the Debian partitioner. The CD install volume and an
ATAPI tape drive were on the mainboard's secondary channel, and nothing
was on the primary channel. Previous attempts (and HOWTO advice) showed
the CD-ROM could not be attached to either of the RAID channels, thus the
additional PCI controller.

Two 13 Gig drives were set up with matching swap and 10 Gig RAID
partitions. The remaining space was given to FAT32. The two RAID physical
volumes were joined into a single RAID 1 partition. I used the all-in-one
layout since LVM on RAID isn't offered with this build. I tested with XFS,
EXT3, and JFS filesystems for the /dev/md0 RAID partition. Both EXT3 and
JFS installed succcessfully (completing the installer, adding packages
with aptitude, and completing test reboots) but XFS failed with an odd
error during base install.

Message on Console 1:
------------- [!!] Install the base system ---------------------------
|             Unable to install initrd-tools                         |

| Check /var/log/messages or see virtual console 3 for the details.  |

Message on Console 3:
tar: ./postinst: Cannot open: Unknown error 990
(The rest of the messages appeared to be reporting this error back up the
stack. The error is repeatable - logs available on request.)

This is a scratch system so I can try different installs, but I don't have
high speed Internet access here. Your patience is appreciated.

Note: That one can consider trying the installer multiple times to chase
down a bug is a strong endorsement of how easy installs have become. Great
work, D-I Team!

Hope this report helps someone find the glitch.  --Don

We are closing this installation report for one of the following
- it was reported with a pre-lenny version of Debian
- indications in the installation report give the feeling that
  the reported problem waslying in another software, unrelated to
  D-I, which we can't easily identify.
- indications in the installation report suggest that it may have been
  fixed in a more recent version of a D-I component
- it was successful and we forgot closing it..:-)
- it has no information we consider useful

The D-I team is currently in the process of cleaning out the old spool
of installation reports that haven't bene processed yet. 

In case you think that the problem you reported has chances to be
still present, please reiterate your installation test with
a more recent image of D-I, if you're in position of doing this.

You'll find daily builds at
http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer. We recommend you choose
the netboot image, in the "daily builds section", then choose to
install "squeeze" when prompted.

If some problems are found, please report them with a new bug sent
against installation-reports.

Many thanks for your understanding and your help improving Debian,
past and present.
