dan__t
this controller is not RAID :(
Wonder if I could/should attempt software raid...
aitrus
just use linux software raid
it's easy cheesy
;-)
dan__t
Never done it at install time with Anaconda
We'll see how this goes. BRB.
Twigathy
http://twigathy.com/docs/linux/myfirstraid5.htm <--- linux software raid 5 in less than a page ;)
i think i had to type 7 things and I had a working raid array
dan__t
i r need a mirror.
Twigathy
er, just change the mdadm creation command then ;)
dtm
dan__t: everyone should do software raid!
dan__t
not really
dtm
yeah. really.
         

dan__t
Nope, sorry.
aitrus
why would you use software raid when you have a hardware raid controller?
or when you only have 1 hard drive in the box?
dtm
aitrus: because you dont want a proprietary disk format and slower performance
it'd take a mega expensive controller to exceed the capabilities of a 1GHz+ cpu
as in big iron
dan__t
I've always been very against software raid
Dyson
software raid is often a low-budget solution
dtm
dan__t: one is encouraged to get any clue whatsoever then <3
Dyson
not always, but often
dan__t
I have a clue, but thanks. I appreciate it.
dtm
Dyson: that's a nonsequitur
dan__t
I forgot I'm not allowed to be biased or have a personal preference.
For shame.
dtm
dan__t: your statements indicate entirely otherwise
Dyson
dtm: a what?
dan__t
Not really, but whatever keeps you happy in your own world there, sparky.
dtm
Dyson: it does not logically follow anything that was said
Dyson
<-- German, not native speaker...
dtm: hmm... i could tell you why and it what cases :)
dtm: but it would take some time :)
dtm
dan__t: you're allowed to , but you're not allowed to claim that something blatantly irratinoal by definition is clued
dan__t
Welp, I guess this will be a learning experience.
Right.
Again, sorry for being biased and having a personal preference.
Clue, as in history, tells me to stick with hardware RAID whenever possible.
Are there any more of my personal preferences which you'd like to discuss?
oh, sh*t, this isn't going to work if I RAID /boot, is it
pleonas
hello all
dan__t
hi.
dtm
i dont nkow about anaconda, but raid1 can be installed on any partition at any point in the system's life cycle
         

pleonas
i'm newbie
dtm
i just converted my whole system to raid1
pleonas
i have a question
dtm
you can do it live, without relocating data
dan__t
I think I recall hearing horror stories of having a drive die and not being able to boot the second.
pleonas
i 've got a problem with yum
dan__t
I know. I've done it.
dtm
dan__t: that does not stand to reason, on a system that's sufficiently nonbuggy
dan__t
Again, I apologize for having seen that on the internet at some point.
dtm
that could happen with a kernel bug, one supposes, but i'd still imagine that's unlikely
pleonas
Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: update
Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: update
dtm
you can apologize for attemptnig to pass off irrationally moody diatribe as objective
or maybe take a walk or sumpin
<3
dan__t
There's nothing to apologize for. haha.
A smoke break does sound good. brb.
in this god damn 116 degree heat.
dtm
fsov 'good'
s/fsov/fsvo/
pleonas
anyone
Phobia
dan__t, you in TX by chance?
hehe
Dyson
dan__t: 116°F?
dan__t: what is this in °C or Kelvin?
Phobia
about 43 or so...
C
maybe 44
Dyson
oh... that's really hot :)
we hat 38°C today
Phobia
yeah... hehe 41 right now where I am, that is why I was wondering if he was close.
Dyson
s/hat/had/
Phobia
This whole summer thing has to go... rm -rf summer
dan__t
Damn, it's hot.
116F, yes.
Dyson
(Action) has 22°C all day
:)
air condition rocks
Phobia
My house in manila has been getting so much rain it hasn't gone above 27 there for 2 solid weeks.
dan__t
I've been in a datacenter all day.
Phobia
hah, I get to do that tomorrow dan__t
dan__t
Walking out of that, a crisp 62F, into the heat, just plain sucks.
Dyson
hrhr
Phobia
Sucks in the winter though because ydou freeze to death.
Dyson
the heat isn't really the issue here...
but the air outside is really "wet"
pleonas
i find LOL
dan__t
Where is "here"
Dyson
germany, cologne
dan__t
ah.
Dyson
it is hot, yes... but when you walk out the air-conditioned zones you instantly start to sweat because the air is wet
like... hmm...
wait... dictionary-lookup :)
dan__t
humid
Dyson
no
aitrus
???
Dyson
like walking into a sauna
aitrus
humid
saunas are humid
Dyson
yep... it is humid like in a sauna :)
you inhale and it almost hurts
a few seconds later you're alright again
that really sucks much more than the heat
aitrus
sounds like you should take it easy on the A/C
Dyson
i should probably find a way to humidate (?) the air inside the a/c-zone :)
aitrus
humidify
Dyson
ah ok :)
aitrus
that would be counter-productive
A/C's remove moisture from the air
Dyson
that's the problem
LuvRedheads
sounds like a conversation for #CentOS-Social
Dyson
yep. probably :)
aitrus
right, because we are interfering with so much technical chat in here
dtm
*bzzzt* say again! *static* say again, you were garble!!! *static*
aitrus
hahahahahah
Evolution
hehehehe
aitrus
hahah
Evolution
hehehehe
aitrus
there should be more random kickings
dan__t
Ah awesome.
aitrus
to keep people awake
dan__t
The machine stops at "GRUB "
Thank you, software RAID. THis is why I should use you more often.
aitrus
better than at LI
hughesjr
Evolution: drop the jack daniels bottle and step away from the keyboard :)
Evolution
:-(
Dyson
I'm being discriminated because I'm member of a minority :)
dan__t
hah.
Dyson
that sucks! ;)
Evolution
(Action) backs away from the keyboard but keeps the bottle
dan__t
So, anyone ever seen this before?
aitrus
there are no minorities in IRC
dan__t
Grub booting with "GRUB " in the top left corner?
Dyson
dan__t: i know this issue
dan__t: and I even know the solution :)
Evolution
dan__t: yep. it's trying for a root that it can't find.
Dyson
dan__t: query?
dan__t
Bah
So I suppose grub.conf's root (x,y) will hold the answer, eh?
Dyson
no
:)
dan__t
Query what?
Let's talk here, maybe others will learn from it.
Dyson
dan__t: /query Dyson :)
hmm...k
