one of reasons i disliked and stopped using lvm in early days. no way to
simply change a physical to logical. may be now, do not know.
what a friend told me he had to do one time when needed to convert was
build a system with lvm, place drive with physical and logical in it.
next copied files in physical off drive to new system. reformatted physical
to a logical and copied files back.
when he replaced drive back into original box, all went well.
i do believe he had to make changes to fstab, and something else, but i
do not recall.
in a free world without fences, who needs gates.
help microsoft stamp out piracy - give linux to a friend today.
to mess up a linux box, you need to work at it.
to mess up an ms windows box, you just need to *look* at it.
