lvm and raid on ubuntu 10.04 LTS


I have installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS on machine but wanted to choose RAID and LVM during partition scheme. Unfortunately I couldn't find such option during partitioning.

Is it true that for Ubuntu 10.04 LTS it is unable to use RAID and LVM ?

thx for help.

You will need the alternate installer to install with lvm. Not sure if you can also install with raid.

A search engine is your friend.

As far as raid is concerned I didn't quickly turn up anything but I know there are folks that have it set up.

What your are running into with the installer is that Ubuntu wants to make the installer "simpler" and less "intimidating" to noobs. This leaves a lot of users, including noobs, unable to set things up as they would like.

There are work arounds if you hunt for them.
