in bsd, it's; [page 279 the complete freebsd]
# newfs -v /dev/vinum/concat
i geuss you would then mount a directory to that partition; that's how
it is done in linux.
in linux, my volumes were /dev/ODIN/THOR01,2,3 etc. [my kernel is
VALHALA ;-) ]
the directories were then assigned to the volumes.
# mount /dev/ODIN/THOR01 /usr
if i specify a logical volume (in linux) after i already have data on
the partition it is assigned to, it erases the data on that partition.
that's why with suse, it done in the beginning in the installation,
before anything else is done.
i have been told that i have to wait until after i have installed my
system, before i can define a vinum volume.
what do i have to do? install a small incomplete but running system,
only so that i can later specify the vinum volume on a separate
as i pointed out in suse-linux, the specification of logical volumes is
done in the initial installation process. not later! if i have to
first create a partial running system, on separate partition to create
my volumes, that means that i then have to go back and move (or erase)
the original partial system to make the partition it was on usable as a
vinum device. is this clear enough?
if this is the process, it is redundant to say the least.
