To build the rapiddisk management utility, you will need to have the zlib, libcryptsetup and libjansson development library files installed on your host system.

You are required to having either the full kernel source or the kernel headers installed for your current kernel revision.

To build rapiddisk from source, you would type the following on the command line:

# make

# make install

To uninstall rapiddisk (must execute with superuser rights: sudo):

The rapiddisk utility will install in /sbin/

For utility information please reference the rapiddisk manual page:

# man 1 rapiddisk

Contact

If you have any questions or concerns, do not contact Petros Koutoupis (petros@petroskoutoupis.com). Instead, contact your congressman or congresswoman. I am trying to be politically correct here.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
