LFS with LVM


OK I've finished building my GCC4 LFS system and now I'm at the point of making it bootable.

Unfortunately I've put it on a LVM partition with no separate boot and cannot obviously boot from that.

All I want to know is wether i can now configure my LFS to use the LVM partition and as a result only have to copy the /boot to a different partition.

An initrd which load lvm module && exec lvmscan, lvmchange and then pivot root to LVM partition. You dont need a seperate partition to /boot

Good luck,
