View Full Version : Raids

Hello Ubunturers

Well I cannot Install Ubuntu because I have a Raid 0 Array (Via Via 8237) Made with 2 Sata Drives, and the Ubuntu Install CD (5.04) Doesn't recognize it. It only shows up the 2 hard drives. The fact is that I had prepared a new partition for ubunto previously with 20GB and ext3 and the installer hasn't seen it. ](*,)

Well.. all of we know windows sucks in some ways.. by the other side I'm a Student at the University and all my programming work must be done under Linux.

What can I do to install Ubuntu onto my Raid Array? :-? Something can be done?

Ahh another thing. The installer also didn't recognize my internet Connection, that is an ADSL with modem, with username and pass. In windows i just have to install the raspppoe protocol and query the available services on my ethernet. Then create a conection for that service and just dial with it.

What do we ADSL users do with Ubuntu? ](*,)

I thought it was easier to install it :neutral:

Well.. hope somebody can help me

suppose that ubuntu will never discover your hardware raid, but you could create a software. Using the ubuntu installer.

And try pppoe-conf to setup your adsl connection.

the ubuntu installer does not allow me to do that. It says that there aren't any available hdds..

and how do i use the pppoe-conf during the installation process..?
