add support for booting from a software raid1 partition
Yast installer already supports the creation of software raid (md software raid i mean) partitions and correctly manages root partition on raid1, lvm or a combination of both of them, but it does not support at all booting from a /boot partition which is on a software raid1 volume. It allows you to create a redundant /boot partition, but it does not manage grub2 correctly. The result is a system which cannot boot with the first (/dev/sda1) member of the raid volume in a fail state. yast installs grub2 only on the first raid member.
The feature I propose is to enhance yast installer allowing it to manage /boot raid1 partition with grub2 so that a system can boot also with raid1 /boot partition with a failing member
Set user benefit
You can add different relations here, for example duplicate features, obs projects, urls...
To embedd an image you can simply upload it to paste.opensuse.org and add a relation to its raw url.
Set release notes
directly from yast installer create a partition layout like this:
sda1, sdb1 -> /dev/md0 -> /boot (ext4)
sda2. sdb2 -> /dev/md1 -> swap
sda3, sdb3 -> /dev/md2 -> lvm volume group -> / (ext4)
sda3, sdb3 -> /dev/md2 -> lvm volume group -> /home(ext4)
and correctly install grub2 so that the system is able to boot also with a failing raid1 member.
