I tried posting this in the Knopmyth forums but no one responded. So
I figure I would ask the myth experts. I would follow the guide Jarod
puts out but it seems like a lot of work.
I am trying to do a master backend knoppmyth manual install.
The reason I need to do a manual install is because of my hardware
I have a server that I am going to install the following.
9gig Ultra 160 scsi hard drive, on integrated ultra scsi 7890 RAID controller.
(2) 250 ide 7200 hard drive, ide 1
(1) DVD writer/reader ide 2
(3) PCHDTV cards
(2) PVR 250
(1) ATI 9600xt graphics card ( I plan to remove since I wont really
need to run graphics or sound on the backend)
256 megs of RDRAM (plan to increase if i have to.)
1ghz coppermine processor
I booted off the knoppix cd and it ran the setup scripts. I did get
some wierd errors on the IDE drives but it detected everything.
I selected the manual install option and ran the disk partition program.
It sees the scsi drive and the ide drives but this is where I have questions.
I read through the manual install guidelines but I am still not 100%
clear on a few things.
The scsi drive will be sda1 with partitions for
What else should I put on this and are they all physical and not logical?
For myth and all the video do I put this on the ide drives?
How do I setup the partitions If I want to use LVM ( to add drives later)
what file system do i use xfs, ext something else.
Can someone give me a step by step configuration for the drives and
the proper partitions?
