  • I mean a GUI application, not a webinterface and not a graphical console application. For example on OS X you can drag and drop the disks you want to use in the RAID, select the FS and RAID Level and click create: turbo.paulstamatiou.com/uploads/2010/01/…

There is a GUI application called system-config-lvm, however it does not seem to work under elementary OS Loki.


Maybe GParted will do the job, but if you don't want to use Webmin, I'm not aware of any other GUIs. Nothing stops you from programming one.

GParted is a powerful tool, but it is unsuitable for handling RAID.

  • This does not answer the question. You have stated Gparted cannot be used, but fail to suggest an alternative.
