how to use fdisk?


hi guys,

i have this problem. is it really a prob?

fsdisk -l gives this

Disk /dev/sda: 400.0 GB, 400087408640 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 48641 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 14 48641 390604410 8e Linux LVM


i want to mount a point to /dev/sda2

how can i?

thanks in advance,
bijuhpd

It looks like you have something like a raid controller (more than one harddisk connected for one large volume) or software raid.
Did you load the kernel module lvm?

Basically you will have to make an entry in /etc/fstab. Since lvm volumes are a little trickier, here you can find some more information:

LVM HOWTO
Linux Logical Volume Manager (LVM) on Software RAID

Hmmm... 400 G wow! You don't say which distribution you are using or the details of your installation, so I cannot give any definitive response. I assume you have Linux installed in the /dev/sda1 partition since there is a boot flag, and the partition type is 83. This partition is only about 50 MB, so again, I assume it is your boot partition. That is, it will contain the kernel and enough information to boot.

I am not as familiar with Logical Volumn Managers (the other partition of type 8e) as I would like to be, so I can't be much help troubleshooting. On the other hand, I don't quite understand your question. Perhaps it would be well for you to read up on LVM. Please do a Linux Google for LVM (http://www.google.com/linux and search for LVM).
