Okay, so one of the disks in a JBOD (well… single LVM) has been on the way out (hopefully can recover some stuff off it… there’s nothing completely important… but still).
I’ve now learnt and desktop has three new 320GB drives in a RAID5.
Currently installing Ubuntu 7.04 on it. I do have to say that the alternate install disk (which uses debian-installer) has a REALLY nice RAID and LVM setup now. If only it also let you pass parameters to mkfs it would be ideal.
Update: It got the bootloader horribly wrong though and I’ve gotten to piss-fart around trying to get LILO to install and boot. Current result? Blinking cursor in top left of screen. Fantastic… fucking fantastic.
