can't format software raid in edgy beta (amd64)

Bug #63235 reported by derek dillon on 2006-09-30
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
partman-md (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: debian-installer

When I try to format the three md0,1,2 software raid devices the installer says there has been an error communicating with the kernel, and that I will have to reboot. When I reboot I just get to the same scenario again. I have no idea how to fix this problem, sorry.

I can confirm that excatly the same happend to me with 6.10-server, i did not manage to figure out why it happend, but when i did set up MD under the installation of 5.10 it worked without any problems.

Alltough this was on the 32bit version running on a P4 2.6Ghz machine with 6x Samsung Spinpoint 200GB disks.

Hi, thanks for the bug report.

I've been doing a lot of work on RAID in the Ubuntu Intrepid installer, and a lot of testing thereof.

I have not run into this problem, and I strongly suspect that it's been fixed.

I'm going to mark this bug 'Fix Released', but please reopen if you can reproduce this bug on Hardy or Intrepid.
