Re: F10: devicemapper raid not seen in installer



To follow up on my own post: I have seen the same problem now on a
number of other machines of this type with such a raid configuration, so
unfortunately, it is not just a single machine with a broken
configuration. 

I filed a bug report, https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=474399
