Upgrade shenanigans

Saturday, October 4th, 2003 at 7:22 pm

I spent some time last night and this afternoon stripping down and then rebuilding my media box with some changes:

  • Replaced the aging 8GB boot drive with a new 40GB (now also a location for backups)
  • Added in a third 80GB drive (rotated out of my main box)
  • Rebuilt the LVM volume with the three drives and used XFS instead of ext3
  • Moved over from Redhat 9 to give Mandrake 9.1 a try.
  • and cleaned a lot of dust out…

Although Mandrake and Redhat are very similar there are a few quirks that I found surprising and will have to get used to…
