It took a while, but I have now filed bug reports against several
packages with all the patches and fixes that are needed to make this work.
699430: debian-installer: support for Intel Matrix Raid (RST, imsm)
I noticed that noone replied to this message or to any of the bugreports
regarding the installer. That means wheezy isn't going to be able to be
installed on Intel Matrix Raid - too bad, debian would have been the
first distribution to have that capability (with the mdraid driver, that
is) - and the patches are quite trivial.
What did I do wrong, and what is it going to take to get this into wheezy+1?
