[Bug 268873] [NEW] 'Do you wish to start the degraded RAID' not visible

Public bug reported:

installed intrepid alpha 5 (using vmware) for a RAID1 + LVM scenario

removed disk0, tried to boot, and fell back into busybox

the problem: for a normal alternate installation (not from the server
CD), splash is activated by default; therefore, the question 'Do you
wish to start the degraded RAID' times out because it is invisible in
the graphical boot animation; the text modus is only activated after the
timeout; you can avoid this by booting in recovery mode or by removing
the splash option in the GRUB kernel line

apart from this minor glitch, everything works fine now as described in



PS: I really believe bootdegraded=1 should be the default setting
(remote servers, root servers at a remote ISP etc.)

also: for a server installation I prefer LTS, and it looks like I have
to wait for 10.04 to get these fixes included by default; please re-
consider providing updates and including them in 8.04.2
