Partitioning question - LVM


Hi folks,

I expect to experience partitioning HD on command line creating LVG and LV. But I can't start console at time of installation. I even tried booting "linux expert". Still I could not start console.

Booting "rescue" console can be started. After umount HD I can run command line partitioning HD. But I can't find following commands;

lvcreate
vgcreate

Finally I'm compelled using GUI installation to finish the job.

Please advise how can I boot to console window with all commands available. TIA

B.R.

From rescue mode, the lvm commands are run like this:
Code:
# lvm lvcreate...
# lvm vgcreate...
# lvm lvscan

One easy fix is to download the CentOS-LiveCD (CentOS-4.3-i386-LiveCD.iso) to get RedHat-style CLI or GUI environments.

Just follow the link to one of the CentOS mirrors: http://isoredirect.centos.org/centos/4/isos/i386/
