How to view a LVM from inside Puppy?
 
Hi, I am wondering if anyone knows hows to manipulate a hard drive that is a LVM (Logical Volume) when you are booted up in Puppy from a USB (or even a Live CD)? I've always wondered this but never asked... but it does not even show up as a partition in which you can mount to view its contents as you might just on a normal user partition. I'd like to copy some files up into puppy from the hard drive like a few movies but I cannot see them to do it. Anyone have an idea or solution?

Thanks!

Show.Can you see your drive there?

Actually, I am using a gpt partition, not an msdos so fdisk is no good. I must use gdisk and puppy does not seem to be anywhere close to supporting a gpt partition or even an efi bootloader (Grub 2). I could be wrong though.

I don't know if these links will help you or not or if you have even looked at them already but here goes nothing.

Though I don't see how grub2 will help in mounting a gpt partition so you can copy your movies over.

Does not look good though. Only one hit
