Can anyone point me to a good tutorial on Software Raid in Fedora? I want to use larger drive sizes than the hardware RAID will support!

Do you want your root file system on RAID? The Fedora installer (anaconda) has complete support for doing this.

I'm setting up a computer with CentOS 6.4 and a mirrored software
RAID. I would like it to be encrypted so I was wondering what the best
configuration is. The only info I could find is
http://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-docs/2008-October/001912.html
but it appears to be a bit old and the info on the wiki (
http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/EncryptTmpSwapHome ) doesn't seem to
address RAIDs.

My main question is will it be better to encrypt the RAID itself or
the two partitions used by the RAID? Any other things I should be
aware of?

For example, if I have RAID size of 10TB but my data is 12TB, then how can I make use of the RAID and if so how?

Please explain in simple language, if possible then in layman's terms. I want to understand only basics not in deep.

So I wanted to remove libimobiledevices since I *though* I was the one who'd installed it and it was no longer needed (I'm ditching the iPod).

I typed
sudo yum remove blahblah

where blahblah was the actual package name for libimobiledevices.

All of a sudden, I saw it removing all sorts of stuff I didn't want to: blueman, banshee, empathy, etc. It then dropped me to a terminal screen where it had started blueman again. It stayed there.

Finally, I restarted the computer and it only starts at runlevel 3 (non-graphical mode). I have to log in and type startx every time to bring up the desktop. BUT, it only automatically starts GNOME3 and not
XFCE. I also have no way to select XFCE as I no longer get the login screen in graphical mode. It just starts the desktop.

How can I fix this? Did I just do something that will require me to reinstall my system?

Oh, I also tried to do

sudo yum install libimobiledevices and it told me that it was already installed.
