Reboot:                 [E] Kernel hangs on raid1 root partition[1]


The installation failed with the kernel 2.6.8-1-386 and a raid1 root
partition. The kernel hangs[1] with the default initird. To solve the 
problem, I booted on a root backup stored on /dev/hdc3. Then I made 
a mkinitrd as it's written in the documentation of mdadm. That is to say:

1) add md and raid1 into /etc/mkinitrd/modules

2) change ROOT on /etc/mkinitrd.conf

3) run mkinitrd -o /boot/initrd.img-2.6.8-raid

4) modify /boot/grub/menu.lst to specify to use the initrd I had

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.
