Re: [linux-lvm] Reducing the size of a physical volume

I confirm Mandrake 9.2 is able to install on LVM.
That includes booting from LVM and using a LV as root fileystem.
you need to chose expert install to be able to do this tough.

Good idea. :-)

so I set up a "mandrake"
logical volume, but Mandrake doesn't seem to support LVM

[ disclaimer: I have not gone through an "installation" of 9.2 yet -- all of my systems were 9.1 which I just urpmi --auto-select upgraded after reconfiguring the sources -- but unless anything has changed since 9.1, my comments should be accurate ]

It sure does!  Diskdrake has supported creating PVs, VGs and LVs for
quite a few releases now but not creating / as an LV.  As of the last
release or two, I submitted enhancements to the installer to allow
installation onto a root LV.

Did you choose "Expert" installation, or choose the "Advanced" mode when
you got into Diskdrake?  You likely need to do that to see the LVM
