d-i on pre05: errors setting up LVM on software RAID
during manual partitioning of two ide disks d-i showed an error message that
the kernel could not re-read the partition table (invalid argument) and
suggested to reboot after writing the changes when entering the LVM setup.
After a second installation attempt with the same error I reverted to
partition LVM only to get the installation done for the moment.
I did find a maybe related old bugreport
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=251905 suggesting "> 1)
partman won't let you build an LVM on top of a RAID device: Still there.
This needs changed to libparted", but:
I do successfully install LVM on RAID (raid 1 /dev/md[0,1] as physical volumes
in volume groups) on the very same hardware with the debian-installer and
kernel from plain debian 3.1r0a and unbuntu hoary CDs.
Is there a relevant difference in the pre05 installation system from the one
on 3.1r0a debian CDs?
