Re: [linux-lvm] Root fs on LV on software RAID

Hello Georges,

Yes it is possible. I have a hardware raid 5 system and two systems without raid where all the filesystem are on lv's (also /boot, I used a patched lilo). You can find some informations in the LVM mail archive.

Best regards.

Hi all,

I'm a new subscriber to this list, learning how to use LVM on Debian
woody with kernel version 2.4.17.

So far, I've managed to build filesystems (ext2) in logical volumes on
top of software RAID-1, mount them and copy data into them.

I'd like to know if it is possible to have the root filesystem on an LV on
top of software RAID (provided, of course, that /boot is on a separate
partition readable by lilo).  I've searched the past few months' worth of
list archives and have found no reference to whether this is actually
possible or not.  Has anyone done this?

Thanks in advance and best regards,
