Subject: debian-installer: no warning about grub's incapability to boot from raid10

Package: debian-installer
Severity: wishlist

Hi,

it just occured to me, that the debian-installer will not give any warning
in case there is no separated /boot while the rootfs is a raid10-array.
In general the installer should either ensure that there is a separated /boot (which cant be raid10)
or if there is no individual /boot-partition it should atleast ensure that
the rootfs is not a raid10-array - otherwise grub will not work (even
grub-installer on the installation-shell moans about grub's incapability to
boot off a raid10-array), thus the installation will even not finnish.


regards,
Patrick

This was already fixed as Debian Squeeze RC2 is able to boot from RAID10 
without separate /boot.
