08:36 ajfHi MT.  brb.  Gotta reboot my PC

08:58 ajfhttp://paste.debian.net/2926/
08:58 ajfThat's the disk configuration I was going for.
08:59 MTok, looks ok to me?
08:59 ajfIt installs, but doesn't boot
08:59 MTwhat does setup-storage tell, or rather, could you again paste the fai.log?
09:00 ajfcan't find my volume group, but it wouldn't be able to since it hasn't tried to start the arrays
09:01 MTdo you have mdadm installed on your client?
09:01 MT(just a blind guess...)
09:01 ajfhttp://paste.debian.net/2927/
09:01 ajfI think there was a problem install grub too
09:02 ajfhad grub not been previously installed...
09:05 MTok, first of all I think that mdadm is _not_ installed on your client
09:05 MTthus, you probably won't get any raid modules into your initrd
09:06 ajfI've just added it and the install is running again
09:06 MTthen, you might want to paste shell.log to see what kind of error GRUB reports
09:08 ajfhttp://paste.debian.net/2928/
09:15 MThmm, probably current grub lacks RAID support
09:16 ajfIIRC, grub only works with RAID1 boot partitions and the boot partition can't be a LVM LV
09:19 ajfInstalling grub onto both MBRs of a 2 disk RAID1 works well when using the debian installer with preseeding
09:20 ajfbut using preseeding, there's no support for RAID with LVM hence my interest in fai.
09:21 MTok, then we need to fix the postinst script
09:22 MTcurrently there is no way of telling the postinst script to do this
09:23 ajfBTW, adding mdadm to a client class does indeed let the system boot
09:24 ajfSomething to add to the wiki page perhaps?
09:24 MTyep
09:25 MTdone
09:25 MTso, seems like you just need to hack the postinst script for the time being
09:26 MTwell, and if you get this hacked, please let us know :-)
09:26 ajfas in /srv/fai/config/files/boot/grub/menu.lst/postinst ?
09:29 MTjep
09:32 ajfSo, first problem seems to be that BOOT_DEVICE is only set to one device, in my case /dev/sdb

09:56 ajfWould now be a good time to mention I don't know any perl? :)
09:58 MTis that postinst perl?
09:59 ajfno, but the setup-storage stuff is
09:59 MTwell, just don't care about it :-)
09:59 MTI'll try to fix setup-storarge if you can tell me what information would be most desirable to have for the postinst
10:00 ajfok, I'll see what I can do
10:01 ajfI did notice one thing though.  The bits in setup-storage that set BOOT_DEVICE reference http://grub.enbug.org/LVMandRAID.  But that's only relevant to recent version of grub2
10:03 MThmm, well, I was hoping that grub could do more for us
10:03 MTat that time...
10:03 MTso, should BOOT_DEVICE contain all the devices marked bootable?
10:03 MTseparated by space?
10:04 ajfyeah, I think that'd be the way forward without migrating to grub2
11:43 ajfhttp://paste.debian.net/2938/
11:46 ajfModifying device2grub would be much cleaner, but I think I mentioned my lack of perl knowledge.  Besides, you did tell me i should 'hack' the script! :)
