My SATA drives were detected as RAID.


Hello all!
I've got strange problem that I didnt encounter with SUSE 10.0-10.3.
My hard drive partitions are seen as
/dev/mapper/nvidia_ahdcbbbc_part3
/dev/mapper/nvidia_eficeche_part5
and so on.
It's pretty annoying to use these names. What can I do to make it use /dev/sda and /dev/sdb?
I was doing a fresh install from i386 KDE DVD. I chose manual partitioning and there I saw these "strange" device names (see attachment). I found my way around and installed SUSE successfully. Now all I want to do is to use "normal" device names. I was browsing google all the day and seems like nothing helped. Passing "nodmraid" to kernel doesnt help either.

Impossible. Other than that... I was working on this PC for 4 years or so with many distributions and everything was working fine. So I wont fix what's not broken.

So you have no raid options.
You must have done something during install. I installed opensuse-11 with raid options disabled in the bios ... the device names are ok.

Mainboard specs?
You can file a bug report too
