Installing Slackware with lvm2


While looking through the docs and propaganda about lvm2, it does sound like something I can/will use. My basic questions are:
  1. What is required for lvm2 to work with Slackware
  2. If lvm2 is on the disk, how hard would it be to reinstall Slackware (assuming I'd keep the same partitioning scheme)?

I don't know if this is the same version on the CD. Here is what I got from linuxpackages.net:

LVM2
version 2.01.15
LVM2 - Logical Volume Manager utilities

LVM2 refers to a new userspace toolset that provides logical volume management facilities on Linux. It is reasonably backward-compatible with the original LVM toolset, with the exception of snapshots. LVM provides a higher-level view of the disk storage on a system than the traditional view of disks and partitions. Logical volumes can be resized and moved around almost at will.

Requires: device-mapper (the package), and Device-mapper support enabled in the 2.6 kernel

NOTE: This will not work with 2.4 kernels
Package Added By : Ken Zalewski

This Format: 10.2

SlackBuild Included: No

Thank you for the reply.

Yes. I read that already.

I was wondering more about actual users adopting it and the possible issues.

Sorry, I just happened across the LVM2 Slackware package earlier today. I haven't tried it myself.

I see what you are asking now. I have a second Slackware box I use to "test" packages on. Maybe I could try it out and maybe post some info on "what not to do". There isn't anything important on it, so it wouldn't be any great loss.

Until then, maybe someone else could help you with their experience.

Good Luck!
