RAID array

I want to install Devuan Ascii (32 bit) on my old HP desktop. I've got 2x250GiB discs that I have partitioned into a RAID 0 array. I've had no problem doing this with the Debian installer. I'd like to know (in advance) if I can also do this with Devuan? Does it come with a Debian-style text-based installer? If so, how do I access it? I am currently downloading devuan_ascii_2.0.0_i386_desktop-live.iso.

Re: RAID array

You access the debian (devuan) installer by booting one of the installer isos. The live isos use refractainstaller, which won't do raid or lvm. You want one of these:

Re: RAID array

Thanks for that. I see that there's devuan_ascii_2.0.0_i386_cd-1.iso as well as _cd-2 and _cd-3. What's the difference between them?

Re: RAID array

The CD isos have fewer packages on them. You can install with just the first one for a small system, or you could use the additional ones for more packages. The DVD iso is a better choice.

If you select a mirror during the install, then you will essentially be doing a netinstall, and you'll get the full system. If you can do netinstall and you don't need to have the packages on a local optical disk, just get the netinstall iso.
