Set filesystems and mount points for logical volumes
The “alternate-text” installer of Ubuntu supports all four journaling filesystems – Ext3, Reiserfs, XFS, and JFS. Ext3 is usually the default, but using Ext3 requires that an LV be un-mounted before it can be resized. Reiserfs and XFS makes no such requirement. To save us one more task when it comes time to manage LVs, let’s choose Reiserfs. Enter.
With the file system set, time to set the mount point. Select the option as shown. Enter.
Repeat the last six steps (last six screenshots) for the other logical volumes that you created. For this tutorial, here’s what we would choose for the other LVs (the mount points in parenthesis):
- root ( / )
- usr (/usr)
- var (/var)
- tmp (/tmp)
- swap (swap)
