Install Etch on G4 server with RAID1



Hi,

I install Debian with the installer Etch RC1 on a G4 server having two hard disks, the system and the swap will be on partitions in software RAID1.

I used this trick for the RAID part : http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=397973

- Firstly, do the NewWorld partitions have to be on the RAID1 or not?

For this installation, I parted the two discs like this :

hda1 APPLE    32.3 kB
hda2 NewWorld 5 MB
hda3 RAID     79 GB
hda4 RAID     1GB

hdb1 APPLE    32.3 kB
hdb2 NewWorld 5 MB
hdb3 RAID     79 GB
hdb4 RAID     1GB

md0 --> RAID1 (hda3 + hdb3) --> EXT3 for root
md1 --> RAID1 (hda4 + hdb4) --> SWAP


The big problem, it is that with the first reboot Yaboot did not find the kernel. The installation is finished but Yaboot is badly configured.

- Below the configuration of Yaboot, which is what is incorrect?

boot=/dev/hda2
partition=0
root=/dev/md0
timeout=50
install=/usr/lib/yaboot/yaboot
magicboot=/usr/lib/yaboot/ofboot
enablecdboot

image=/boot/vmlinux
        label=Linux
        read-only
        initrd=/boot/initrd.img

image=/boot/vmlinux.old
        label=old
        read-only
        initrd=/boot/initrd.img.old


According to me partition should be : partition=2 ?

Regards.
