Are you referring to ext3/ext4 type of file system.

I have read it but what I am asking is not mentioned.
I am breaking an LVM which is not having any filesystem on it into 2 parts.
One will be used as root of type ext4 and another part will be used as
How can this be done.
mkfs.ext3 and mkswapfs commands exist but how to I break the LVM in to 2 parts.
I am not asking to extend or move or resize or taking snapshot of the
LVM which is given in your LVM Howto.
If you used virt-manager it does that
any user space program will show you one LVM but inside it will be
having ext3 and swap partition within same LVM.
I do not want to have different LVM for swap and ext3.
I want both these filesystems to co exist.
This thing is not mentioned in the LVM How to.
