I wanted to post this here since this is the place I got the guides for half of the thing I am trying to do. Hopefully I can get some help in understanding if this is the Pop_os installer shitting itself of me being incompetent. So I wanted to set up my system in Raid 0 mode and do a root partition encryption using luks. I used the mdadm utility to setup Raid 0 and then cryptsetup to encrypt the created partition.
I was following 2 guides from this forum by Wendell, can’t include links so I will just include the ends:
Thanks a lot to Wendell for making those!
Separately either raid 0 or full disk encryption- work. I can either have my whole system(minus /boot /efi partitions) on the raid 0 array or have my system installed on one drive with full disk encryption but as soon as try to do both I get the “could not install” error. I have the screenshots and the /tmp/installer.log but for some reason can’t link it, maybe because this is my first post, not sure, maybe I will be able to do it as a comment afterwards? Am I doing something wrong or its the installer messing up?
for now last few lines from the installer:
