Re: LVM and install over existing installation

Ah, so if I see this right, I can configure LVM and treat it as I would any other partition. So say I had this:
    --- Logical volume ---

      LV Name                /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01

I could treat that exactly the same as /dev/hdax?
yes, you can mount LogVol01just as you would mount /dev/hdax
assuming that LogVol01 is formatted as ext3 you could use the follwing in your fstab

/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 /mountpoint ext3 defaults 0 0

If so that's awfully helpful, I assumed LVM relied on the currently installed OS to function so by booting into another OS install I wouldn't be able to access it.
as long as the OS understands LVM there should be no issue, you would need to install LVM2 before you can use it.


Just another collection of nuts
