http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I have 4 drives in total on my system. And I want to make a logical volume which is a part of the volume group that has all 5 drive partitions. This is my disk setup: Disk /dev/sda: 120.0 GB, 120034123776 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 14593 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Disk identifier: 0xc3072e18 Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 * 1 2611 20972826 83 Linux /dev/sda2 2612 2734 987997+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris /dev/sda3 2735 8814 48837600 83 Linux /dev/sda4 8815 14593 46419817+ 83 Linux Disk /dev/sdb: 320.0 GB, 320072933376 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 38913 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Disk identifier: 0x000c6669 Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sdb1 * 1 38913 312568641 83 Linux Disk /dev/sdc: 320.0 GB, 320072933376 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 38913 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Disk identifier: 0x000c0f9b Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sdc1 * 1 2433 19543041 c W95 FAT32 (LBA) /dev/sdc2 2434 15807 107426655 83 Linux /dev/sdc3 15808 27966 97667167+ 83 Linux /dev/sdc4 27967 38913 87931777+ 83 Linux Disk /dev/sdd: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Disk identifier: 0x263dac44 Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sdd1 1 60801 488384001 83 Linux -------------------fstab file # /dev/sda1 UUID=54aa38ac-e175-4979-92dd-43a4ec27ac79 / ext3 relatime,errors=remount-ro 0 1 # /dev/sdb1 UUID=b5b58938-dd30-4cda-a4fa-8afe29d34ba4 /home ext3 relatime 0 2 # /dev/sda2 UUID=806b152c-1e0d-4507-8173-1a2f7f022fa9 none swap sw 0 0 ------------------output for df Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on /dev/sda1 20807184 5557868 14200676 29% / /dev/sdb1 307663800 307663800 0 100% /home I want my volume group to contain the 5 partitons: /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc2 /dev/sdc3 /dev/sdc4 /dev/sdd1 I also have a windows partition that I'm going to leave alone. I dont want to repartition any hard drive. So does anyone know the detailed commands to make a volume group that contains these partitions, so I can expand my /home directory? Best regards (HowTos)
