[opensuse] btrfs (with subvolumes) & raid-1 setup

I'm considering to move from Debian (Sid) to openSuSe where my Linux
adventure has begun in 1999. :-)

At the moment I use raid-1 setup of 2 X 1TB GPT-partitioned disks with
the following layout:

/dev/sd(a,b)1 bios_grub 2MB
/dev/sd(a,b)2 swap 8GB
/dev/sd(a,b)3 btrfs 923.51GB

/dev/sd(a,b)2 partitions are in raid1 swap volume, while btrfs
partitions are also in raid-1 and I use subvolumes for / & /home:

UUID=some-uuid / btrfs
defaults,noatime,compress=lzo,autodefrag,subvol=@ 0 0
UUID=some-uuid /home btrfs
defaults,noatime,compress=lzo,autodefrag,subvol=@home 0 0

I'd like to replicate this setup with Suse as well, but, if I'm right,
the installer in 13.2 can't do it?

The other option, which I used when installing Debian, is to install
Suse on single disk and then clone it and add to raid-1 array.

Any hint?


Bewildered by the modes of material nature, the ignorant fully
engage themselves in material activities and become attached. But
the wise should not unsettle them, although these duties are inferior
due to the performers' lack of knowledge.
