Re: [opensuse] md stealing disks!

Notice that you could also create the filesystem on the whole disk, no

You can, but IMHO it is a bad decision to do so. It exposes you to
several more ways you can shoot yourself in the foot, and can confuse
anybody else who looks at the disk (of course, that might be a bonus in
some circumstances). There is another opinion at:

https://raid.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/Partition_Types

What type number did you use for the partition? There is one for raid,
if the system sees it, it will automatically try to use md on the
partition.

Indeed, the same URL discusses the issue briefly.
