Support for LVM

Asked by Niklas Hagman

So does this vm-builder (0.9-0ubuntu1) support installation onto a logical volume instead of directly to disk or file?
This is related to bug #260682 in package ubuntu-vm-builder.

I've got preliminary code to do this.

I have created an ubuntu image on an LVM disk using the --raw /dev/vg/lvname option. This was using vmbuilder 0.12.4

The full command was

sudo vmbuilder kvm ubuntu --suite saucy --flavour server --arch amd64 --components 'main,universe,restricted' -o --libvirt qemu:///system --dest linux --bridge br0 --hostname linuxvm --tmpfs - -v --mirror http://hostname.lan:3142/ --addpkg linux-image-generic --raw /dev/vg1/rootfs2

nearly 6 years later, I hope this helps someone!

My next step is to try and separate out the swap file, so I can build the server and test it as a VM, then boot the created server on the physical machine, with the root partition remaining as an LVM logical volume.

Can you help with this problem?
