Re: HOWTO: Linux Software Raid using mdadm
I am not sure I understand - do you already have a version of ubuntu installed on partition/s in your box?
or are you simply booting from live CD and are weary to continue the install to your HD? and are now trying to add the mdadm package at this stage?
the mdadm you "install" to the desktop Live CD is actually installed to ram as the CD is not altered during the live CD bootup - to create raid devices and mirrors at this stage the alternate install CD is needed
what I think you are trying to do is install ubuntu from a liveCD and simultaneously maintain the integrity of the other data and OS's on your box by installing ubuntu to a spare partition - being careful - right?
let us know if this is the case?
