View Full Version : [ubuntu] partitioner locking up

March 10th, 2009, 10:56 PM
have 3 identical drives and at first I can configured four partitions.Raid1 /,raido swap and two data raid5. I can configure the file systems for raid to start with but when I start building the different arrays I recieve a number of errors at different times. One is I must reboot for Ubuntu to recognise the change but when I do my arrays are not listed so I have to go to Configure Raid but don't create or delete and select finish and the arrays I had built then show up. If I continue the proccess then eventually the partitioner locks up and it is back to the drawing board causing me to have to run Aconis and delete and clean wipe all partitions.

I have even gone as far as to do a so called default load where /root and swap are the only partitions but as I build the raid before I am able to select finish the partitioner again locks up.

I know the install cd works because I can load on one drive but why the partitioner locks up is beyond me and I am sure my confurations are correct.

Someone please help me out.
