Extra data partition (LVM or not)

Postby insomnia » Tue Jan 16, 2007 8:56 pm

I have to wipe a windows partion at work and make an extra data partition with it.
I personally don't use LVM at home since I change partitions on a monthly base and find LVM overcomplicated. At work I just use a default fedora install including LVM.

Question:
What's the best way to add an extra data partition?

1. The old way:
mounting the partition and adding a "LABEL=" in /etc/fstab
I assume this is still possible with the rest of the filesystem being LVM...?

2. Resizing the LVM and make /home use all extra space:
This worked once for me using Void's howto, but failed horribly a second time.

A logical volume is not a file system, just another container level between the physical partition level and the file system level. You use lvm to create physical volumes on raw disk partitions and then use one or more physical volume to create a logical volume where you will create your file system. You still have partitions and you still have file systems but one advantage of putting a file system on a logical volume rather than directly on a raw partition is a logical volume can span multiple partitions on multiple drives. It can be resized or moved around between physical disks on the fly why the system is in use.

If you could provide more information about what you are trying to do and where you are running into problems I might be able to help. Give as many details as possible.

Thanks :)
I've been sick since posting that (just a flue), so that will be something for next week.
I understand all basics about LVM but just find it a pain to use.
Still no easy to use tool for it?

Some other questions,
So..., your howto will work for adding an other harddrive as well?
Does LVM handles partitions and their content the exact same way if they're not on the same drive?
Can I mix ext3 with xfs without any extra trouble(seems weird)?
