I'm on opensuse 12.1 (from a mirror frozen shortly after the release).
After playing with this more, I've been having a lot of problems fakeraid on this
host (Dell T3500, Intel 82801JI), so I'm probably going to look at a software raid
(Specifically, the symptom is that during install, I get a disk error/failure. Then,
after reboot, the fakeraid is in a "Failed" state, with one drive marked as a
raid member and the other marked as non-raid (whereas both were initially raid members).
I've tried various BIOS twiddling, but haven't figured out how to remove the
"curse" from this machine, to allow it to install onto fakeraid again.)
Unfortunately, I can't really send logs, because I can't get a fresh install
going because of that.
Thanks for your help,

That does not work since the autoyast profile is loaded after the

I've tried setting the device to
"/dev/md" or "/dev/md0", but
this doesn't work. I've tried passing a kernel parameter of
LIBSTORAGE_IMSM_DRIVER=mdadm or =IMSM_MDADM--no luck.
LIBSTORAGE_IMSM_DRIVER=mdadm should work. Which version of SUSE
are you using? Can you provide the YaST logs?
