Description Jesse Keating 2007-02-26 20:11:57 UTC
I did an install with a raid 1 /boot, raid 0 / and a couple swap partitions. 
The initrd wound up with raid0 and raid456 modules, but no raid1 module.  This
makes booting somewhat unpleasent.

Comment 1 Andy Burns 2007-03-03 14:16:37 UTC
Similar for me with F7T2, /dev/md0=raid1=boot, /dev/md1=raid5=LVM(root,swap)
installation boots but fails to assemble md0, gives up and issues e2fsck suggestion.

Comment 2 Andy Burns 2007-03-17 12:35:11 UTC
rawhide hasn't been installable (for me at least) for the past week, today it
has reached a better state and a PXE install from local mirror now avoids yum
issues, still ended up without raid1.ko in initrd.img, should this block F7t3?

Comment 3 Andy Burns 2007-04-01 21:52:04 UTC
Just to report this has worked OK on a clean slate F7t3 install /boot on
/dev/md0 RAID1 and root and swap on /dev/md1 RAID1.

Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 19:15:57 UTC
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

We will be following the process here: to ensure this
doesn't happen again.
