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.

Please read the [[Funtoo Linux Installation#Live CD|Live CD]] section in the regular guide. The only thing you need in addition to the [[Requirements|requirements]] it mentions is the sys-fs/lvm2 package or equivalent. If you use [http://www.sysresccd.org/ System Rescue CD], it includes the lvm2 package.

Preparing the hard disk for an LVM install isn't much different from a normal install except that we won't be creating a bunch of partitions as we are going to use logical volumes instead. All we need is a /boot partition, if your using gpt, you'll need the GRUB partition, and the rest of the space will just be one big partition which we'll create our logical volumes out of.
+
 
+
{{fancynote|We're using the previous mentioned setup to keep things simple in this guide. We are also assuming your only using one hard disk though LVM supports adding multiple hard disks and partitions to a volume group. Please adapt these instructions to suit your needs}}
+
 
+
The regular install guide does a good job explaining MRB, GPT, and gdisk/fdisk so we won't be repeating that here. Read through the [[Funtoo Linux Installation#Prepare Hard Disk|Prepare Hard Disk]] section and create the previous mentioned partitions.  
+
If your following our setup your partition table should look like the following when completed:
+
 
+
'''GPT partition table'''
+
<console> TODO </console>
+
 
+
'''MRB partition table'''
+
<console> TODO </console>

Why funtoo-auth?
Funtoo-auth, the Funtoo authentication system, currently in beta, allows a single username and password to be used for wiki, bug tracker and forums.
How do I create an account for wiki, bugs and forums?
Go to http://auth.funtoo.org:9093/new to create an account that can be used across all sites.
Are usernames case-sensitive?
Yes, at least the bug tracker treats usernames as case-sensitive, so take this into account when selecting a username and logging in.
Where is my avatar coming from?
The forums, bugs and wiki use Gravatar to retrieve your avatar. Head over to gravatar.com to set up an avatar. The avatars on the forum will default to Gravatar, but will also allow you to upload a custom avatar.
I had an old wiki account -- will it still work?
When the new wiki (with the new look) was deployed, old user accounts were not migrated. You will need to create a new account.
I have an old bugs.funtoo.org account, and it still works. How should I proceed?
Create a new Funtoo account with the same username as your existing bugs.funtoo.org account. Then start using your new account to log in to JIRA. JIRA will recognize that you are the same user.
How do I reset my password?
One of the missing pieces in the Funtoo authentication infrastructure is an automatic way to reset your password. This will be added soon. For now, contact drobbins at funtoo dot org via email, or drobbins on #funtoo IRC (freenode) to reset your password.
What about SSL?
I plan to add SSL for auth.funtoo.org as well as bug tracker, wiki and forums in the relatively near future.
