Bug#412723: yaboot-installer: yaboot sets wrong partition number in LVM/RAID situations.

Sven Luther-2
Package: yaboot-installer
Version: 1.1.9
Severity: critical
Tags: d-i
Justification: breaks the whole system


When doing an LVM over RAID install on an apple XServe, we have three
partitions : sd[ab]2 -> the yaboot partition, sd[ab]3 -> /boot and sd[ab]4 the
LVM partition, which holds the root.

But / is on a LVM device, and /boot on a RAID1 device, which yaboot knows how
to read, since a RAID1 partition will be seen as a normal partition
individually.

The problem is due to the fact that our /boot is in /dev/md0, and that we want
yaboot to look at the partitions containing this RAID1 partition, namely
/dev/sd[ab]3.

This leaves the system unbootable on a reboot, thus the severity of this bug
report.

Friendly,

Sven Luther

yaboot-installer is no longer used, powerpc and ppc64 ports have moved to grub.

So closing related bugs.
