Install of Fedora 10 and fedora 11 Beta fails because a issue in dmraid for
dmraid extract raid metadata from well known disk address, extract disk
serial numbers from metadata and compare these against serials obtained from
In this particular case serial number from ioctl() returns 20 char width
serial number and serial numbers in metadata are 16 chars width and for this
reason the string matching test fails.

I have submitted detail in bugzilla:

Anaconda depends on a successful result of dmraid set discovery, but this
particular issue doesn't allow to go further with the installation process.

The fix is very simple, but this fix is not included in fedora raid rpm. I'd
like to know who is the maintainer of this rpm package to add patch I
