Using LVM, one physical volume is defined on the entire sda5 partition. A volume
group named "debian8-vg" is defined as the only vg in that pv. Five logical
volumes have been defined in the vg. One lv intended as root was defined like
this with a Debian Live CD:
user@debian:/$ sudo lvm lvcreate -n root --size 8G debian8-vg #define lv named root
user@debian:/$ sudo mkfs.ext4 /dev/debian-vg/root #make a file system in lv root
You did not have to do this with a live CD command line. You could have
done it with the Debian installer partitioning interface.
user@debian:/$ sudo mount /dev/debian-vg/root
The mount point is missing. Besides, why did you mount the filesystem ?
#the "/root" was dropped apparently
What do you mean ?
There they are. All the logical volumes. Am I getting close? How can I "mkdir /"
on root and succeed with netinst? BTW I did choose Manual partitioning in the
You do not have to do anything with the command line. In the manual
partitioning main panel showing all disks, partitions and volumes, just
select a logical volume, edit its settings and select a mount point.
