M0E-lnx: As of yet, the installation system will not find my disk, much less my partitions, when it tries to install. So I haven't even been able to try the install yet.
bigpaws: While I have not completely re-initialized the volume with the RAID controller, I have deleted all partitions and rewritten the disklabel completely. I'm not entirely sure what you're asking after asking about zeroing the disks. And I assume you mean have I tried to create the partitions with a system that appropriately recognizes the controller and automatically creates the block files, and no, I haven't. I didn't have another good distro CD last time I played with it, but I do now, so I will try that.
Thanks, both of you.
read that. I'm unable to help at all w/ this issue as I've never owned enough hard drives to have such a configuration
However, as we move towards VL6, I'd like you to try to find an answer to this problem, so that we can take tackle it before the release, so you (and other users with the same hardware setup) dont have to go through your pain.
If you would, please keep a log of what you're doing to get this fixed...
The devel team will appreciate it.
