Re: [linux-lvm] mounting a filesystem on LVM2



mkfs.ext3 and mkswapfs commands exist but how to I break the LVM in to 2 parts.
I am not asking to extend or move or resize or taking snapshot of the
LVM which is given in your LVM Howto.
If you used virt-manager it does that
any user space program will show you one LVM but inside it will be
having ext3 and swap partition within same LVM.

partitions, just like any other block device.
Preferably use parted as opposed to fdisk, as
fdisk can support only up to 2 TB.

Are you referring to ext3/ext4 type of file system.

I have read it but what I am asking is not mentioned.
I am breaking an LVM which is not having any filesystem on it into 2 parts.
One will be used as root of type ext4 and another part will be used as
swap filesystem.
How can this be done.

I do not want to have different LVM for swap and ext3.
I want both these filesystems to co exist.
This thing is not mentioned in the LVM How to.
