[mythtv-users] Adding a hard drive, LVM or RAID0

For whatever reason (random "eeny-meeny-miney-mo" decisionmaking), I
chose reiserfs. It works fine and I've had no problems with it.

Out of curiosity, what did you mean when you said:

6) Unmount both the new hard drive and my old video partition, rename
the logical partition to be the same as my old partition

I'm thinking you just need to change your mount in fstab

/dev/VGforTV/tv /mythtv/tv reiserfs auto 0 0 

or something like that... No renaming anything needed.

You'll also need to be sure that lvm is activated at bootup.

vgscan                                 (scans for VGs)
vgchange -a y                      (activates the Volume Groups and puts
them in /dev)
mount /dev/VGforTV/tv /myth/tv


In my setup, /myth is on /  /myth/tv is a VG /myth/video is a separate VG

/dev/VGforTV/tv /mythtv/tv reiserfs auto 0 0 
/dev/VGforVideo/video /mythtv/video reiserfs auto 0 0 


I'm at work and getting ready to go home so I'm not being very complete.
If any of this is confusing, I'd be happy to be more detailed.
