Wyzardthen you want: root (hd2,0)
setup (hd0)
enouftry using tab completion
Wyzardwhich puts GRUB in the MBR of sda, expecting to find the rest of itself in sdc1
fridimsucceed
Wyzard(Since GRUB isn't aware of RAID and is just looking at a single partition, not both sides of the array, you may need to do this again if sdc fails)
enoufyou should have a /boot on each disk and install to each .. or mirror it
so if the 1st fails the 2nd will boot
fridimIt is mirrored
Wyzardfridim: The partitions are mirrored, but the MBR isn't
fridimBut if it is just a root(hd3,0) to change, it's ok.
holaangenouf, thks, iwas surfing. for my problem, i hve to: grub, root (hd0,1), setup (hd0), reboot.
Wyzardthough in this case you're not using the MBR on either of your RAID drives anyway
fridimcan't I put the mbr on one of the mirrored disk ?
holaang(hd0,1) would be for first drive, partition 2. right?
WyzardYou can if you want to, but you'd have to configure the BIOS to boot from that disk
fridimarg, It still don't start
enoufholaang: setup first IINM , since it has to find all your HDDs that a / could be on
Wyzardand that changes the numbering -- (hd0) is always the drive the BIOS boots from
fridimgrub fails :/
Wyzardso you'd no longer have a simple correspondence between the numbers and the letters
with what error?
fridimerror 21
enoufholaang: 1st drive partition 2
fridimSelected disk does not exist
This error is returned if the device part of a device- or full file name refers to a disk or BIOS device that is not present or not recognized by the BIOS in the system.
enoufholaang: so yes ;-0
fridim: 0x03 appears to be XENIX ?
WyzardThat sounds like maybe (hd2) doesn't really correspond to sdc like we thought it did
holaangenouf, IINF? what's that?
IINM
enoufholaang: If I'm Not Mistaken
holaangOH
WyzardTake a look at /boot/grub/device.map (in your mirrored /boot) and make sure it describes the correct correspondence between BIOS drive numbers and Linux drive names in your system
^rob^hello
enoufholaang: so grub, then setup, then root, then
WyzardIt's past 3:30am here so I'm going to bed
actionenouf hands Wyzard an e-Pillow
enoufhands Wyzard an e-Pillow
^rob^q: if i get debian iso with jigdo - does get the lastest upgraded packages? or it gets the same as if i would get the iso image
enoufand a bankey ;-)
