Xen dom0 with Nvidia proprietary driver

My ultimate goal is get a Xen hypervisor installation running LMDE 12 as dom0, and Windows 7 as domU with VGA passthrough. I have a PNY Quadro 600 graphics card and like to get the Nvidia proprietary driver to run on the Xen kernel, so I can have full graphics support under the dom0 LMDE kernel. Can...

LVM install option

LMDE 12 doesn't have an LVM option for partitioning. I tried Fedora 16 and 17 which both have LVM as an option, but Fedora is terrible and, that is my opinion, just for geeks - nothing worked "out of the box". It would be great to add LVM as an option to the installer. I installed it now on regular ...

That approach should work. You will need to chroot in to properly setup grub.
Thanks Pepas. I hope to make it work sometime during the weekend. First I need to solve some Xen-related issues.

Some remarks to my previous post: While the system booted Ok, I had some minor problems later on, for example synaptic would only start via terminal and sudo -i or -s. Could have been a sudoers issue with permissions. I installed some other stuff (Xen and Nvidia proprietary driver) and got some comp...

Re: Add Option of Full Disk Encryption to all future Linux M

+1

I don't really care for encryption, but LVM is a must! I use LVM on my disks and this requires installer support. It's a real pain to install LMDE 12 on LVs, and any way I chose created problems in the end.

I voted for it in the "idea" forum.

Re: Howto install LMDE with LVM (with or without encryption)

Thanks for providing this tutorial. It eventually worked for me, with some minor alterations: 1. Downloaded LMDE 12 Mate/Cinnamon 201204 64 bit release 2. Created live USB stick (on my old Linux machine) 3. Instead of installing directly onto disk, I installed the LMDE as a VM in Virtualbox - see th...
