no LVM in Ubuntu 6.10 installer?
I’ve had my Ubuntu 6.10 torrent running since I saw the article on slashdot, but I just got around to burning a cd and installing it on a spare machine. I had only recently learned about the wonders of LVM, so I was very unpleasantly surprised to see that the LVM option was removed from the partitioning step. I only spent a minute in the “manual partitioning” dialogue, but there seemed to be no obvious way to tell the installer to use LVM.
In Ubuntu 6.06, you merely had to select “use LVM” at the partitioning step, and the installer would automatically create a volume group for you, etc. I’ll have to look into how to work around this new “feature” in 6.10.
