Re: [linux-lvm] startup stuff an dnew question :-)



It works ! Thanks to everybody who helped. I am too used to debian
packages doing all for you.

/etc/rcS.d is the one that worked. So has init2 got anything to do with 
/etc/rc2.d ???

Another question I have is can anybody show me a good install plan, a
partition scheme for a machine where everything but the / is lvm'ed. I
haven't seen this discussed anywhere. At the moment I am just testing on a
box with a partition / a swap and a /home . 

If I did a standard installation using say 5 partitions / /usr /var/ /home
swap, it would be a pain transferring this to an lvm system. So how do you
lot do it ?

my partitions at the moment

 Device Boot    Start       End    Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hda1   *         1       608   4883728+  83  Linux
/dev/hda2           609       627    152617+  82  Linux swap
/dev/hda3           628       749    979965   83  Linux
/dev/hda4           750      1601   6843690    5  Extended
/dev/hda5           750       871    979933+  8e  Linux LVM
/dev/hda6           872       993    979933+  8e  Linux LVM
/dev/hda7           994      1601   4883728+  8e  Linux LVM

Thanks again.
