Re: [linux-lvm] bootloader questions



Le 21.02.2005 21:37:54, rich turner a écrit :
if i have root(/) on a logical volume, is it required that i have
/boot
on a separate filesystem? does /boot have to be a partition?

the boot loaders i need to support are lilo and grub. do the answers
to
the above question vary if i use lilo or grub?


both lilo and grub can boot the root filesystem as a logical volume.

but grub cannot boot /boot from a logical volume.
With lilo it can either be a separate lv, a partition, a disk, what you what. With grub it should be outside of the logical volume manager (IIRC, there is a patch for grub to use /boot on a LV but I've never found/tried it)




thanks for the help

Regards


Jean-Luc
