cafuego_zu22: *all* ? Or a specific set?
zu22dondelelcaro: ah is that a package?
cafuego_: for all
fridimre
dondelelcarozu22: indeed, it's an example in grep-dctrl's manpage.
zu22trying to find what i can prune
to make upgrades over dialup go faster heh
cafuego_zu22: Oh, justa listing, not atotal (coz you can't install all)
zu22dondelelcaro: awseome thanks
fridimWyzard, you said it was easy to install etch on raid1 :/
zu22cafuego_: ah i better be more careful in my syntax yes
Wyzardfridim: It is, because you can create the array directly from the installer
fridimI have an array, ok
RAID1 n0
Wyzardmade from partitions this time?
fridimBUT, I can't have more than one partition on it :/
simonrvnRAID1 ndeg0?
fridimWyzard, yes from partitions
I mean : /dev/md/ contains only 0
Wyzardfridim: In the installer's partitioner, you'd open the settings for each partition and set "use as: physical volume for RAID"
fridimand when I create partitions on /dev/md0 it says : it will only be available after reboot : the kernel still uses the old table
Wyzardfridim: Once you've done that for both, "configure software RAID" and create the array, and it'll ask you what devices to use as components... you pick both
ithiumdondelelcaro: thanks - not sure what other channel that is... anyway... I seem to be experiencing this bug: http://lists.xensource.com/archives/html/xen-users/2007-01/msg00810.html ...it's very similar, but all I ever get is the Python errors. The weird thing is, it seems to have only started today - maybe I updated to a newer version of Xen with an apt-update or something... I even reinstalled my complete system afresh... I'm on AMD64, Opteron
fridimWyzard, this part is ok
cafuego_fridim: So /dev/md0 is a raid device. What's the problem?
Wyzardfridim: I haven't tried creating partitionable arrays from the installer... I'd suggest using LVM on top of the array instead, since that's more flexible anyway
fridimcafuego_, yes, but I need partition on it
cafuego_fridim: just run 'partprobe'
fridimLVM on one partition ?
Wyzardfridim: Partitionable arrays have to be specially created -- they're a slightly different type of device as far as the RAID driver is concerned -- and I don't know how well they're supported in the installer
fridimI'am lost.
zu22a buddy showed me another way in case anyone curious: dpkg-query -W --showformat='${Installed-Size} ${Package}\n' | sort -nr | more
dondelelcaroithium: it'd help if you give the actual errors you're experiencing; use the pastebot to provide it.
Wyzardyeah, just set /dev/md0 to "use as: physical volume for LVM"
dondelelcarozu22: yeah, you can also do it with aptitude
ithiumdondelelcaro: what's a pastebot?
Wyzardthen create a volume group from it, and LV(s) within it
fridimWyzard, will it boot ?
dondelelcaro!pastebot
