Re: RAID1 on boot?

Maybe I screwed something up, but it took a few tries; was trying to use two devices in raid1 to make a /dev/md0, then mount / (with /boot under there) directly, and GRUB2 was not happy...

I found this helpful — https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_42xUFxcfU

Anyway, more or less set — thanks!

I am looking to ensure that the RAID1 on boot install that I will try this
weekend goes well, and am looking for updated pointers.

IMO it looks more or less good, except LILO. Grub handles raid as well, or
even much better.

I usually allocate a small 256 or 512MB partition for boot and make
dedicated raid for it (md0). Another raid (md1) is done for the LVM volume
(rest of the disk). In such a way the second RAID can be first encrypted
and then LVs can be created.

The process is more or less the same as in the howto
