Raid Root System

Posted 09-08-2011 at 07:57 AM by SukiiPooru

My first attempts at a raid root system failed in that the raid was created but failed to boot because raids were not being assembled by initrd.
I am having another attempt by following this procedure:
It takes a while to assemble raid6 arrays ... be patient

Should dependency resolving be made part of basic computer administration skills?

Honestly as a Slackware user I'm very well skilled in this trait and can easily manage my own system, but what about automated package management distributions? Sure you can have a system hold your hand and walk you through in baby steps, but what about that rare case when a dependency is not resolved by the package management system because the package is obscure enough not to have a mainstream dependency file? What then? Honestly, I have ran across some of these. I've had to often do hour long...

Back after a long break

I'm slightly ashamed of the fact that I haven't posted to LQ for nearly 2 years. I have happy memories of this site.. I'm a lurker nearly everywhere else on the web, but this is one of the only places where I actually used to contribute something.
