LVM support for the installer

Postby bluelupo » Tue Jan 11, 2011 5:17 am

it would be nice if the installer in the Debian version (LMDE) by LinuxMint an installation option for LVM system (Logical Volume Manager) would be available. That is, all file systems can be added to logical volumes. The functionality of the LVM installation could be in something like the Debian installer or the installer of Aptosid.

Is this feature for the next version of LMDE planned? I have many years experience with the LVM and install all my Linux systems in this way.

I want LVM support also on Linux Mint 13.

Hello! I agree this suggestion.
I installed Linux Mint 13 Maya the MATE 64bit edition with LVM with reading Mint + LVM?. LVM is convenient also for other versions, too. It let me resize swap partition and so on easily. Maybe, some want to use Linux Raid, too.
If the installer supported Linux Raid LVM by default, nobody would mistake on installing Linux Mint with Linux Raid or with LVM.

@ Emmanuel_Chanel: You are responding to a topic about Linux Mint Debian (LMDE). Please open a new topic instead of asking your question here. There are how-to's available how to install Mint (Ubuntu-based) on LVM.
