This is an attempt to collect everything needed to know to get LVM up
and running. The entire process of getting, compiling, installing, and
setting up LVM will be covered. Pointers to LVM configurations that
have been tested with will also be included. This version of the
HowTo is for LVM 2 with device-mapper and LVM 1.0.8.
All previous versions of LVM are considered obsolete and are only kept
for historical reasons. This document makes no attempt to explain or
describe the workings or use of those versions.
