only once previously, the new LMDE is really very good. Now to my problem I have with the installation. I would like to install the LMDE in a LVM (Logical Volume Manager) system.
I've manually before invoking the installer of a PV, a volume group and create some logical volumes (see next listing).
- Code: Select all
LV VG Attr LSIZE Origin Snap% Move Log Copy% Convert
LVboot VGsys-wi-ao 256.00 m
LVhome VGsys-wi-ao 5,00 g
LVopt VGsys-wi-ao 1,00 g
LVroot VGsys-wi-ao 1,00 g
LVswap VGsys-wi-ao 2,00 g
LVtmp VGsys-wi-ao 512.00 m
LVusr VGsys-wi-ao 4,00 g
LVvar VGsys-wi-ao 3,00 g
Then created all the ext4 file systems with the command mkfs.etx4 and creates the swap devices and enabled.
After that I started the installer and wanted in as root device partitioning my root logical volume selection. Unfortunately I do there always just /dev/sda1 select a device. With the installer is at all an installation on LVM devices possible or what am I doing wrong?
I usually have no problems installing and setting up a LVM system because I have placed many systems so (eg Debian or aptosid).
PS: Sorry for my bad English. I hope all understand what I wrote above.
