Adding LVM support to MX-Live


Post by m_pav » Sun Oct 14, 2018 5:10 am

MX Linux Live does not come with support for Logical Volume Management, but it literally only takes a minute to add it to a running Live MX Linux session. I had a job to complete, so I gained access to the drives contents as I had done before, then I wondered if any such information was available within the massive MX Linux documentation and, .... nothing found, so I recorded a screencast video and posted it to youtube, url below.


The instructions are so stupendously simple, I'm thinking even a novice should be able to follow them. I don't recommend adding lvm support to a personalised snapshot unless you like a much longer boot time, so I think this video instructional will be a nice addition if it should ever be needed.

Sorry for the quality and unrehearsed progression, I did it on the spur of the moment and it was late at night.
