Images directory on LVM



  • Hello… has anyone had their images directory mounted on a LVM? I am not sure if it is a bug or perhaps something else but when I had my /images directory as part of a LVM once the upload of the image hit 2GB, it would stop with an write error and reboot the client. Yesterday I reformatted my hard drive on the server, and created /images outside of the LVM and it worked fine…



  • Ahh okay… Will do :) thanks for the suggestion.

    I strongly suggest using ext4 instead of ext3!

  • Should work with LVM. I assume your error lies in the filesystem options. Maybe the wrong fs or no large file support active?

I use LVM for all my partitions (/boot, /, swap, and /images). I have no issues with images such as this (49.8GB is largest image I have). This setup is about 3 months old now (new hardware).[/quote]

    Thank you for the reply. Good to know it should work under a LVM. I just don’t understand why it was failing part way through the image upload to the server.
