So swap and ext4 both do exist in all four lvms above but how  is that done
manually that is one thing I want to know.

Ahhh, got it. For that scenario, you should be able to use "standard partitioning tools" on the LVM volumes.

For example:

  $ sudo fdisk /dev/nintendo/lvm1

or:

  $ sudo parted /dev/nintendo/lvm2

And that kind of thing.  Inside the guest, it will just have (for
example) /dev/nintendo/lvm1 given to it as a full disk (ie /dev/sda),
and would see the partitions in it you've created.  (ie /dev/sda1,
/dev/sda2)

I *think* that's what you're asking?  Is that right? :)

Regards and best wishes,
