Description Jussi Mikkola 2005-04-15 20:19:13 UTC

Description of problem:
I have an AMD64 that is run on a i386 version of FC4test2. It has nforce3 chipset and 2 sata disks. What I wanted to do is boot raid1 on primary + home and system on raid1 + tmp + not extra raid0 disk on lvm. I can configure, but when I start the computer, I get errors on e2fsck on the raid0 partitions. 

the disks are in the form, first boot, then raid1 then raid0.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install FC4
2. create partitions
3. boot the computer

Actual Results:  I end up in having errors on boot, and on a prompt asking for root password to fix the errors

Expected Results:  normal boot. This happens, if I configure boot partition and raid1 in 1 volume group with all volumes.

Additional info:

When I changed the raid0 to raid1, it did not help, when I still had the to LVMs on the same disks. Don't know, if adding disks would affect.

Sorry but I can't parse your "What I wanted to do" sentence.

Can you split it up to show exactly what your configuration is?

Comment 3 Jussi Mikkola 2005-05-04 13:50:21 UTC
Hi, sorry, I don't remember any longer exactly, but here is the basic idea...

I have 2*200G sata disks. I want to have /boot raid 1 100M + 100G raid 1 + 200G
raid 0. And for all others than /boot, LVM.

I can create them during install, but when booting, it does not work.

Guessing this is either similar to bug 147361, or else some problem with the
raid + dm in the initscripts that got fixed some time ago.
