using LVM for single hard drive


Hi,

Are there any advantages for using LVM on a single drive system? And, how would one setup the hard drive with LVM and then install the OS on it? Thanks.

LVM gives you the flexibility of being able to resize your partitions as your needs change. It is useful if you use several partitions to split the hard drive space (i.e. you run out of space on /usr but have plenty to spare on /var).

The LVM HowTo contains all the information you need.

Thanks.

There is option to partition the disk with LVM during Fedora's install, I just never noticed it. I'll give it a try next time I do fresh install.
