Package: partitioner
Version: included in netinst,iso
http://cdimage.debian.org/pub/cdimage-testing/sarge_d-i/i386/rc3/sarge-i386-netinst.iso from 2005-05-03

During the installation I'm offered to partition the host; I have two hard drives installed, which shall become RAID1 system partitions, therefore I thought to create the following HD layout (for each disk):

1. /boot
2. swap
3. RAID1 partition

within the RAID1 partition I wanted to create separate paritions for /, /var and /tmp.

However, the partitioner does not create any parition table within the md-device, hence, to create more than one partition in it fails. However, if you choose to let the partitioner automatically create an layout in the md-device, it creates multiple partitions ;-)

I would say that the bug is that you cannot partition md-devices.

I also tried to put an LVM onto the RAID1 device, but that failed with the error that there is no unused partition.

Also, when there are the md- partitions, they are not displayed when you reboot, but only after you select to create a RAID device, which fails, because there is no unused partition left. When you return to the main screen, the RAID device is displayed.

Thanks for your report.
Closing as it's an installation report from Sarge which isn't supported
Feel free to test and report any issues against the current debian
installer release (Squeeze RC1) which supports more hardware and also
it's improved.


Melhores cumprimentos/Best regards,
