Re: Anaconda, Grub, RAID 1, /boot

Folks,

I've run into something odd, and a way to repair the damage, but was
hoping someone could shed some light on what's actually happening.

We've stabilized on RHEL 4.4 for the time being.  I have had several
reports of folks installing a RAID 1 system with /boot mirrored and
complained that Grub hangs or otherwise wont boot the system.  I've done
this a lot and it always works for me.

FWIW, I do exactly that on my FC4 system w/o any problems at all. Note, I'm *not* claiming FC4 Anaconda supported anything like that, I did it all--created the RAID1 volumes and installed grub--manually after the fact.

  $ rpm -q grub
  grub-0.95-13
  $ uname -r
  2.6.14-1.1653_FC4smp
  $ mount
  ...
  /dev/md0 on /boot type ext3 (rw)
  $ cat /boot/grub/grub.conf
  ...
  title Fedora Core (2.6.14-1.1653_FC4)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.14-1.1653_FC4 ro root=/dev/md1 rhgb quiet
        initrd /initrd-2.6.14-1.1653_FC4.img
