Re: [opensuse] How to partitioning in unallocated disk space

To be sure, LVM
solves some problems that should lead to less frequency of need for help with
it, but for a thread like this involving a n00b who has no apparent LVM
exposure, those competent and willing to provide the exposure seem to be in
short supply.

I came to LVM on Linux after a long wait, having used the JFS on AIX
previously. I was disappointed in the support available on most
platforms but was delighted to find Heinz Mauelshagen's implementation
in Suse 6.3 and Michael Hasenteins marvellous documentation on the
principles, using the command line and using YAST back in 2001.

I had to wait for 7.1 for snapshots

Michael has his own web site now and the original paper from 2001 is
there: http://hasenstein.com/lvm_whitepaper.pdf

The point here is

1) LVM is not new, neither in concept nor implementation
2) Its been in openSuse a LONG time

It is also very well documented on the 'Net
