I've planned to take a 3 400Gb SATA HDDs and to do something like
3xRAID1 (ext2) /boot 3xALONE (swap) swap #even after panics when one swap area fails just reboot 3xRAID5 (jfs|ext3) / #and resume work on a degraded RAID 3xRAID5 (jfs) /home #with good jfs recoverability
I'm newbee in a Linux kernel and bootoptions but has some xperience with a Linux and (mostly) xBSD hi-level configuring so my Q may looks a bit dummy.
When I boot an Installer (2009.10-2) and select Manual Partitioning I can't make any RAID partition just because here is no such options.
When I switch onto another tty (or close installer, or boot it via F6 and removing di-live from params) and do a modprobe md then next lsmod shows md module loaded but regardless of it when I run di-live again it shows the same partitoning opts like before without any RAID.
Also I can boot a Live and apt-get mdadm package but AFAIR before final on-disk installation Live environment warns that "any changes will not saved" so this on-the-fly installation seems useless.
Am I wrong somewhere except DNA? :)
How to do a fresh (on a clean drives) install of a FileServer Appliance on the software RAID5 with JFS?
What's right steps for it?
