View Full Version : added 2 disks, want to enable RAID 1 on them

30th May 2007, 10:50 PM

I'm new to Linux and I installed FC6 on a "single" disk. Now I added 2 IDE disks (/dev/hda and hde) and I want to initialize them as a RAID1 drive.

Where do I find in KDE the tool for it? I can't find disk druide, which I used during install on another machine and with it, I created a RAID drive...

Thanks for your help :-)

man dmraid

why dmraid ? dmraid is halfhard-software raid. and i don't like it.

better to use linux software raid which is made with mdadm command line tool.
read 'linux software raid howto' to make raid.

Hi together,

do you have any experience with mdadm??? It SW-based and looks like the right tool.....
