Hardware Linux

Fun stuff about home server management you don’t learn until you’re already knee-deep in problems

  • The hardware-based “Raid 1” hard drive mirroring (for safe data “insurance”) that’s built into most motherboards today isn’t real Raid 1 — it’s a type of “fake” Raid 1 that’s really just a fancy software wrapper:
  • It’s actually really, really easy to control what hard drives are mounted (and to what directories) on Ubuntu by editing the /etc/fstab file.  Yeah, that’s about it.  No fancy programs you have to run or weird modules/packages to install.  No need to search through Google for hours thinking that “there’s got to be something more to it than that.”
