I've been trying to install LMDE on a LVM partitioned disc. According to posts that I've found on this forum (http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=40961
), this should be doable (at least for mint v8).
However, for me, the installer does not detect any lvm partitions (I'm guessing that mint v8 installer did not use libparted?). Is there any way to force the installer to skip the partition step (without changing the code)? Or in some other way force it to install on an lvm system?
Perhaps it would be easier to simply install it on VirtualBox and clone the installation using a live-cd, but that means I have to wait to try LMDE until I have more time and LMDE does look sweet!
