This tutorial will show you how to install Funtoo, including the rootfs, on logical volumes. This guide is meant to complement the regular [[Funtoo_Linux_Installation|Funtoo Installation Guide]].
  
Funtoo is currently beta-testing a new centralized login infrastructure. Contact drobbins in #funtoo on freenode to request an account that will allow you access to our wiki and bug tracker.

=== Introduction to LVM ===
 +
LVM (Logical Volume Management) offers a much more flexible way of managing your storage devices. Not only does it allow you to resize your volumes while the system is still up, it also frees you from having to decide exactly how many or how big volumes need to be at the time of installation.  
  
Old wiki accounts have not been migrated to this wiki, so you will need a new account to perform wiki edits. Old bug tracker accounts were migrated to the new bug tracker, so those continue to work, but consider getting a new-style unified account that will work on both wiki and bug tracker.

Introduction

This tutorial will show you how to install Funtoo, including the rootfs, on logical volumes. This guide is meant to complement the regular Funtoo Installation Guide.

Introduction to LVM

LVM (Logical Volume Management) offers a much more flexible way of managing your storage devices. Not only does it allow you to resize your volumes while the system is still up, it also frees you from having to decide exactly how many or how big volumes need to be at the time of installation.

For a detailed tour and introduction to LVM please consult the LVM Fun page.
