Let me clarify. On the criteria page i read (have to dig out the link)
it said that bugs regarding having /boot on softraid are ignored at
this point, so no i didnt bother filing a report. sounded like a known
As for the test day. Really, i always try to help out on test days but
i guess i was too busy/on the road when this one happened. Manually
setting up softraids with mdadm works like a charm btw. What is
problematic is setting up the correct partition layout manually with 2
drives because anaconda moves around and reenumberates the partitions
when you add new ones. (that drove me to insanity.) also note that
using kickstart works like a charm aswell.
in the notes i only found:
Atleast on the f12 install this also failed with a seperate boot. I
am going to keep my eyes open for f14 and doing an install with the
current f14 state soon to see which of those issues is still left and
file appropriate reports regarding the open issues. I am really
curious also if it will automatically make both disks of the mirror
setup bootable (writing grub to both mbrs).
