Re: [linux-lvm] Rescue cd for lvm 1.0.3 (fwd)

Hello all,

again a little question. i have currently the following configuration:

# fdisk -l /dev/hda
/dev/hda1	1	1115		8e Linux LVM

/dev/hda1 => rootvg

   /dev/rootvg/root		/
   /dev/rootvg/usr		/usr
   /dev/rootvg/boot             /boot

Why this configuration is so bad? Is it better to leave the /boot on an
"normal" ext2 filesystem? But, what files need the kernel from /boot to
bootup the system correctly? I think the kernel will be stored in the
master boot record with lilo?
And all files from /boot are accessable, after the ramdisk was loaded.

Btw. linux boot up succesfull, on my other system, where the /boot is on
an logival volume.

Any hints?

"boot from an root-lvm" ... sounds dodgy to me.

You can have the *root* filesystem "/" on an LVM volume.

However the *boot* filesystem should be /boot, which should be a small
ext2 partition mounted directly on a partition.
