Bug#466600: cpqarray: install works until grub



Hi,

I just grabbed a d-i daily build (netinst from June 2nd) and booted it on a 
Proliant dl380(g1) that has a cpqarray controller with the same PCI id as 
reported in the person following up to #466600 (who is not the original 
submitter, but claims to have repeated the problem).

The partitioning and package install work fine for me. The I/O was slow (I 
tested a dd to the device was about 6mb/sec) but I don't know if that's 
normal for that era/type of device. I will try an older d-i and see if it's 
any different.

lspci -knn: 00:01.0 RAID bus controller [0104]: LSI Logic / Symbios Logic 
53C1510 [1000:0010] (rev 02)
lspci -knn: 	Kernel driver in use: cpqarray
lspci -knn: 	Kernel modules: cpqarray

This d-i is using the Linux version 2.6.24-1-486 (Debian 2.6.24-7).

However the grub install stage fails, here's the output from syslog

Jun  2 23:21:51 grub-installer: info: Installing grub on '(hd0)'

Jun  2 23:21:52 grub-installer:

Jun  2 23:23:54 main-menu[1026]: WARNING **: Menu item 'grub-installer' 
failed.

If I check /target/boot/grub/device.map it only contains

(fd0)      /dev/fd0

I did a "guided partitioning" "everything in one partition" so the c0d0p1 
reported above is the root partition.

I'll send more info when I get a chance.
