Re: [linux-lvm] bootloader questions



Le 21.02.2005 22:22:47, rich turner a ÃcritÂ:
this is perhaps the wrong mailing list but is this the case with
software raid as well? although, i believe the software raid must be
raid level 1.

I've a software raid1 on 2 SATA drives. I've LVM over the RAID

Software raid can be about anything

I've setup 2 md devices:
/dev/md0 with /dev/sda1 and /dev/sdb1 for /boot (non lvm)
/dev/md1 with /dev/sda2 and /dev/sdb2 for lvm

The /boot partition is xfs and 100Mbytes
I've setup everything in lvm, even the swap and the root partition.
