sepThms, no, but you can clone (dd) or copy the contenst from a partition to a logical volume
earthiani just removed /dev/hda2 /dev/hda3 /dev/hda4 and /dev/hda6 as an example
I-kidoyes
earthiannow i have only extended partition and a logical one on the disk...
and that logical seems to be broken :o
help
sepearthian, was /dev/hda5 not a logical partition and did you not delete the extended partition ?
earthianno
extended and logical still exist
Thmssep: because I want to have a SWAP partition, debian partiton, XP partition, VISTA partition and backup partition but I can't create any other partition because there are too many primary partition how can I do ?
GutterPunkI would like to use software raid on a system. Is it possible to manage this during debian Etch install?
sepGutterPunk, yes
GutterPunkBecause I have no idea how to install debian first on a system, and later migrate this to raid...
Ankmangot it. x never comes up when i have an .xinitrc
sepThms, you can play with gparted but ymmw
GutterPunksep, during install I just get 4 different disks to partition. I can do lvm, but this gives me no redundancy. I'd like to configure raid 5
Ankmanafter deleting it ti works
Thmssep: ymmw ?
sepGutterPunk, i have raid option in etch installer
!ymmv
dpkgymmv is probably your mileage may vary. [From 200 litres per km to 200 km per litre.], or http://www.catb.org/~esr/jargon/html/Y/YMMV.html
GutterPunksep, could you point me to a guide? Or should I use some boot parameter to activate it?
creatureFor those of you keeping track: I now have a very pretty boot process.
earthianwhat tool can search and fix entire device for partitions and restore them all
?
and i have a raid0 which is /deb/mapper/raiddevetc
dev* not deb damnit
I-kidodetails creature :)
creatureI-kido: I may write up something simple about it.
I-kidocool
