has caused the Debian Bug report #243024,
regarding Unable to modify disks on a machine with Mylex Acceleraid 170 RAID controller (DAC960 controller). This is because of the unusual partitionscheme used by the driver: the first logical disk is /dev/rd/c0d0 and the partitions are /dev/rd/c0d0p1, /dev/rd/c0d0p2, etc. Howerver parted expects the naming scheme to be the usual for devfs (../disc, ../part1, ../part2, and so on). As a result partman attempts to mount/format unexisting devices. I do not know how to fix this. In my opinion this is not a bug in parted but in the DAC960 driver.
