Cool, I'm not using raid anymore but I know a lot of people do. I recommend including mdadm on the live cd and having the raid options built into the installer. That would put you guys ahead of most distros as far as supporting raid in the installer goes.

I would like to bump this once. I know it isn't high importance, but it is a deal breaker for myself and a few others.
I've got 1 RAID for system, and 1 RAID for /home. I can't migrate to the joy and bliss that is LMDE until the installer can figure that out. LMDE is by far my preference for all machines now. I just haven't been able to move my main workstation over.

Bump. Still only confirmed, with no action reported and no changes along these lines in the changelog for 201204 release. My feelings are going to get hurt...and I only have 1 or 2.

BUMP - this is a major issue which prevents me from using LMDE
