Ubuntu Server- using LVM

Posted on 2009-02-10

I am running Ubuntu server 8.04.02 on VMPlayer 2.5.1 build-126130.
During the Ubuntu installation, I have chosen to partition disk via guided method - use entire disk and setup lvm.

When I do a df command, I get the following screenshot [See df_scn.jpg].
I am trying to create separate partitions or logical volumes for:
/var, /tmp, /var/tmp, /var/log, /var/log/audit, /home. How do I do this?

As I am new to Ubuntu, appreciate your patient explanations. Thanks!

    To create separate partitions for your filesystem, you should do it during installation of Ubuntu in the VM. If you don't mind, re-install the system via "manual" method, and define your own partitions at that moment.
