Default Bug#466600: cpqarray: install works until grub


I just grabbed a d-i daily build (netinst from June 2nd) and booted it on a
Proliant dl380(g1) that has a cpqarray controller with the same PCI id as
reported in the person following up to #466600 (who is not the original
submitter, but claims to have repeated the problem).

The partitioning and package install work fine for me. The I/O was slow (I
tested a dd to the device was about 6mb/sec) but I don't know if that's
normal for that era/type of device. I will try an older d-i and see if it's
any different.

lspci -knn: 00:01.0 RAID bus controller [0104]: LSI Logic / Symbios Logic
53C1510 [1000:0010] (rev 02)
lspci -knn: Kernel driver in use: cpqarray
lspci -knn: Kernel modules: cpqarray

This d-i is using the Linux version 2.6.24-1-486 (Debian 2.6.24-7).

However the grub install stage fails, here's the output from syslog

Jun 2 23:21:51 grub-installer: info: Installing grub on '(hd0)'
Jun 2 23:21:51 grub-installer: info: grub-install supports --no-floppy

Please call /usr/sbin/grub-install instead!

/dev/ida/c0d0p1. Check your device.map.
Jun 2 23:21:52 grub-installer:
Jun 2 23:21:52 grub-installer: error: Running 'grub-install --no-floppy
--recheck "(hd0)"' failed.
Jun 2 23:23:54 main-menu[1026]: WARNING **: Configuring 'grub-installer'
failed with error code 1
Jun 2 23:23:54 main-menu[1026]: WARNING **: Menu item 'grub-installer'

If I check /target/boot/grub/device.map it only contains

(fd0) /dev/fd0

I did a "guided partitioning" "everything in one partition" so the c0d0p1
reported above is the root partition.

I'll send more info when I get a chance.
