I screwed up my partitioning apparently trying to get LVM and RAID1 going. The machine is an Intel dual core dt with 2 GB of RAM and 2 SATA drives, one 250g and the other 500g.
- Have onboard gigabit ethernet that apparently uses same driver as Realtek 811c. I installed a pcie gigabit card also 811c. At several points the eth0 has accessed the internet fine, but the eth1 will not communicate.
- I saw a "fix" for this online which from root:
rmmod r8169. This immediately killed the working onboard card.
- I tried to re-install 11.10 figuring that would re-install r8169. However I messed something up in my partitioning and can't get a clean boot now.
- So I think after 12 re-installs or so and 2 days. I can get through it right if I can start over with clean drives, but I can't figure out how to empty them out with soft raid and LVM partitions.
Seems like I've had it going well and then trying to fix that one little problem, I go backwards.
