Right, but I'm trying to decide if I should put / on LVM.
To summarize what I've heard so far:
Advantage: Able to resize.
- Grub doesn't support LVM so need /boot on a regular
- Difficult or impossible to boot up a rescue CD and
rescue a corrupted root fs.
If I do this:
1 /boot 32 MB
5 / 200 MB
and have everything else including swap and /tmp on LVs, since I only
would have at most 2 kernels (old and new debian standard package
kernels) during a kernel upgrade;
Would there be any disadvantage to this?
