will vsido install on existing lvm
« on: February 05, 2013, 05:31:32 PM »
I have a pc that came with lvm (formerly a RHEL pc).  I should have taken the time to re-partition, but I didn't.  Will vsido install on an existing LVM scheme?
Thanks

Part of the install includes partitioning your drive with GParted.
You will be asked to select a root , /home and swap partition.
(swap is required).

I hope that helps.

EDIT: Hinto it should install just fine with LVM partitioning as long as you have a swap partition.

^ only if vsido recognizes lvm by default.  Typically RedHat, Debian (and siduction) installers do, but not Ubuntu/Mint.
I'll spin it up and see.

Hinto Logical is part of the extended partitioning.. Correct?

One of my VSIDO installs is like so
Code: [Select]
sdb4: Extended
         sdb6 /
         sdb7 SWAP
         sdb8 /home

No,
It's different LVM

OK.. LVM is nothing like I thought it was.  ::)
So I have no clue in this area.

Thank for sharing the link.

Hi Hinto - Wecome to VSIDO!

Based on this:  "Typically RedHat, Debian (and siduction) installers do"

There is a chance that it would, VSIDO is using a Debian Installer.

No guarantees, you're the first that I know of using LVM.

Maybe this: Debian root on RAID + LVM.

Good luck

I doubt that it will work in a LVM settings, there is nothing in the installer looking for LVM

The reason why debian works is because of partman, which is what I hope to use in future versions of VSIDO

before or after the install?
What should I expect if say, I boot the liveCD, install lvm (in the session) then start the install process?
Hosed on reboot?
