How to configure LVM on Pardus 2011

“Pardus is a Linux distribution with roots in the
National Research Institute of Electronics and Cryptology (UEKAE),
Turkey. It is one of many distributions that does not have support
for the Linux Logical Volume Manager (LVM). However, that is about
to change because YALI, the installation program in the next stable
version, Pardus 2011, will have full support for LVM. But better
than having full support for LVM is the fact that LVM will be the
default disk partitioning scheme.

“This article presents a step by step guide on how to install
Pardus 2011 on a custom LVM disk partitioning scheme.

“If LVM is the default disk partitioning scheme, why would it be
necessary to create a custom configuration? Because in the default
installation of Pardus 2011 (beta), the installer creates just two
logical volumes, one for / and the other for swap, and allocates
all the available disk space to these two logical volumes. A
configuration that defeats some of the benefits of LVM. The main
objective of this tutorial is to show how to create not just a
single logical volume (for /), but also one for /home, and to
allocate just enough disk space to each (logical volume) needed to
get the system installed. This would leave a significant percentage
of the available disk space unallocated. After installation, the
unallocated disk space will then be used to create additional
logical volumes, or grow existing ones – if there is a need
