add lvm to expand a full filesystem
Hello I am using debian
I have the root (/) partition full. I have freed space disk somewhere else but it's not contiguous
I decided that the best option is LVM. I have released espace somewhere else in the harddrive and using cfdisk i have formatted it to partition type 8e linux LVM
now how do I configure the system to use that partition formatted in linux LVM so that i can have its space available for the root partition.. can I convert the root partition to lvm without losing any data.
i have already recompiled the kernel and added support for lvm under device drivers.
thank you very much.
