Changing to LVM after install ??

Postby dw5437 on Sat Mar 14, 2009 11:46 pm

Can you change to LVM after the install without messing up your bookmarks and /home partition. The only thing I really don't want to lose is my bookmarks in Firefox. I am using Mint Linux 6.0 and don't really want to reinstall.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I don't understand what you mean
If you mean changing from mint4win to a real install it's not directly possible (using a tool or so) but can be done given disk space and some Linux skill

I meant can you change your partitioning to Logical Volume Management after you have already installed Mint. Sorry my post wasn't that clear.

Ah - that is probably impossible - it's like repartitioning and still keep your data
Some info here
