    Re: Installing Kubuntu 7.10 on Software RAID5

    kb-linux,

    First, I have to ask if you are installing 7.10. If you're installing 8.X, it could be different. I know there were some changes made to the RAID support in version 8. I haven't upgraded...

    Re: Installing Kubuntu 7.10 on Software RAID5

    Rgotten,

    I don't think I can help you with this latest question. There were some hints in this: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/120375. But I didn't read it well enough to be able to tell...

    Re: Installing Kubuntu 7.10 on Software RAID5

    Rgotten,

    When you "partition" a drive, you slice up the drive into different segments/partitions. For example, when you partition /dev/hda, you end up with /dev/hda1, /dev/hda2, /dev/hda3, and so...

    Re: Installing Kubuntu 7.10 on Software RAID5

    Rgotten,

    I'm afraid I'm out of great ideas. I tested my system to see that I could boot for other drives by changing the drive in the boot menu. I don't think I tried all five of my drives, but I...

    Re: Installing Kubuntu 7.10 on Software RAID5

    Rgotten,

    You do not need to redo the installation. It is okay that you deleted those lines from mdadm.conf. The only reason to comment things out as you go is so you don't lose any previous...

    Re: Installing Kubuntu 7.10 on Software RAID5

    Rgotten,

    Yes, if your are prefacing each command with "sudo", then you are running the commands as root. If you happen to forget it on a command, you will likely get some errors.

    Rgotten,

    A very quick primer on RAID1 and RAID5, because it's essential to understand how the data is laid out on the disk drives. RAID1 is simply mirroring. It's very simple. Every partition in...
