I need help with my Ubuntu Srv build, badly
I am ashamed to say I am actually a computer engineer, but I am constantly tripped up by Linux. I am completely comfortable with command line operations. I have two Xeon X5470 on an Intel S5000PSL board w/ 16GB of Ram (can install more if necessary). I installed Ubuntu Server and decided I was not going to take the easy way out and use Windows Server.
I have 4x1TB drives on the Intel board that I want to run as RAID 5. I thought I had set up a software RAID 5 once but I was unable to mount, and tons of problems after that. I purchased a Geforce GT 610 for HDMI out, and an IOCrest card for adding more drives at a later date.
I am trying to figure out how to build and mount my RAID 5 properly. Then I'd like to figure out how to properly use mythTV.
Anyone care to lend advice or help walk me thru the process?
