Extending home partition with LVM
Hi, I have read the how-to's relating to LVM installation on Slackware 11, but only want to extend the home directory for storage.
I have 3 sata harddrives;
1. 40GB Slackware installation plus home directory.
2. 160GB spare.
3. 80GB Apache and Samba repository for a home intranet.
I don't want to install from scratch. I don't have the time.
From what I can see, basically, I need to create a ram disk and copy the home directory to it, then create a partition /vg in the second drive and mount it.
Completely new to LVM, and a little hesitant to try it, as it has the potential to screw up your system if not done correctly.
Do I need to use LVM, is there another way to achieve the same result.
