I need to increase the size of my Karmic Koala partition, but I believe I can't do that from within the system itself. The CD I have is from Jaunty, which does not support RAID out of the box. How do I install/enable RAID HDD detection in the Jaunty live CD in order that I may change the system's partition size? (or is there an easier way to go about this?)
First you must install needed packages for raid support:
Then you enable kernel module for raid by issuing
After that you can verify whether the raid device is automatically found by issuing
And, as a final step, mount the filesystem(s):
(Note, that these instructions are based on experiences with 8.10 so some steps might be unnecessary on 9.04.)
You can use any Linux live CD to mess with your RAID and/or partitions, provided it supports it.
