Unhappy Slack installation on an SATA RAID array?


Hello everyone. I've pretty Linux-savvy but new to Slackware, and I love that distro!

That being said, I would like to install Slack 10 on a particular server and am experiencing some difficulties. The problem is that this server has an SATA RAID array and no other disks. The RAID controller is a 3ware Escalade 8006-2, so I know that it's true hardware RAID.

The question is, how do I go about installing Slack on this? I've had no success with the kernels included in the ISOs, but I'm sure there must be a way. Has anyone managed to solve this conundrum?

Hi,

I would like to have this problem solved for my self aswell.
I recently bought 3Ware Escalade 8006-2LP and having problems installing Slackware on my S-ATA disks. I want a mirror-back up of disk1 on disk2. I hope i have selected good hardware for this. Any one got an hint of what we should do?

Best regards

3ware raid

see this www.slackware.com/install/bootdisk.php. This shows what sata.i and ataraid.i kernel choices would support. Good luck.
