Environment: Ubuntu Server 12.04, tried installing from bootable flash drive.
Got the following error:
No root file system is defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu.
I'm trying to set up a personal file server with software RAID 5. I just got three hard drives for this, but haven't found any solid documentation. I'm unsure what the basic way to partition my hard drives is. Can someone upload a screenshot of their "partition disks" screen so that I can compare with mine (attached)?
I tired to upload an image, but it said that I need reputation 10+ to post an image...
Should I set the bootable flag? Do I need a /home partition? A /boot partition? Should I "Use [my partition] as: Ext4 journaling file system"? Or make that field "physical volume for RAID"?
I am an engineer, but I have only a cursory knowledge of
all-things-linux. If you know of any good learning resources I'd be happy to hear about those too (that way I don't have to blindly follow deprecated tutorials online).
