package: partman-lvm
severity: normal

d-i: fc1 sarge-netinst

I just tried to do a RAID install on VMware for a test.  I made a vm
with 5 4.0 Gib SCSI disks.  I selected hand-edit partitions, and made
one 4.2Gb partition on each, set to RAID.  After I did that, I selected
'Configure RAID', and let it commit the partitions.

Then I found that it supports only RAID1, no RAID4 or 5... darn.  So I
quit, then back in the partman, told it to undo changes to partitions.
Of course they had already been committed...

It hung for a long time, and gkrellm on the host machine showed high CPU
use in the VMware, like a loop is running again and again in a script.
It went to vt2, and ran ps.  It was the RAID undo script.  I powered off
the VMware.

A lot as changed and have been improved in the debian installer and in it's 
I have sucessfully tested current debian installer with RAID 5, 6 and 10.
As this version of the debian installer is not developed anymore i invite you 
to test with the current release that now it's Debian 6.0 'Squeeze' [1].

Hence i am closing this report and invite you to test and report any issues 
against current debian installer release.
