[linux-lvm] Ramdisk: Why not boot compressed from hda ?



This message I saw today in c.o.l.d.s (in case anyone missed it) looks
interesting, especially since some people have tried to install a similar
setup with LVM, so that the root filesystem can live in LVM (ie rootvg)...

Maybe it's worth another shot at booting from LVM?

Cheers, Andreas
