two identical SATA 250GB drives, config'd for AHCI use, using mobo SATA ports
1/2.

fresh install of openSUSE 11.1 from installer DVD

@ partitioner, EDIT plan ...

create partitions,
sda1, primary, 150MB, LinuxRAID (0xFD)
sda2, primary, * MB, LinuxRAID (0xFD)
sdb1, primary, 150MB, LinuxRAID (0xFD)
sdb2, primary, * MB, LinuxRAID (0xFD)

create RAID arrays
/dev/md0: sda1+sdb1 (RAID-1) -> 8K, /boot, ext3, label=BOOT
/dev/md1: sda2+sdb2 (RAID-1) -> do not format

create raid-backed VG
VG0 <- /dev/md1, 32M Physical Extent

Create LVs
LV_SWAP -> 512MB , swap , swap, label=SWAP
LV_ROOT -> 12288M , / , ext3, label=ROOT
LV_HOME -> 40G , /home, ext3, label=HOME

exec "minimal server / text only" install.

all's OK, system boots/functions as expected.


rebooot system from installer DVD.

select NEW INSTALLATION.

@ partitioner, after 'auto-detection', find

sda1 LinuxRAID
sda2 LinuxEXTENDED
sda3 Linux ... SWAP
sda5 Linux ... ROOT
sda7 Linux ... HOME

sdb1 LinuxRAID
sdb2 LinuxRAID


note the INCORRECT detection/assignment of sda2 as LinuxEXTENDED, and of
sda{3,5,7} as non-LVs ...
