Linux LVM2

Hi,

I was wondering is there any command to check whether LVM2 is installed or not. Also please let me know whether LVM2 comes default with Linux. Please let me know on which versions is it available.

Thanks in advance

Re: Linux LVM2

If your Linux is one of those that uses rpm packages, then I suppose you could try:

# rpm -qa | grep -i lvm

and see what turns up. I don't know if the package names have LVM2 in them or not, but this could be a starting point.

Re: Linux LVM2

If you are asking which versions the RPM command is available? Definately All Red Hat (considering Reh Hat developed it. Have you looked into yum or up2date? Both are useful. I know all of the below versions use RPM AIX (v4), Novell NetWare, Fedora, Mandriva Linux and derivatives: AltLinux,PCLinuxOS,Linux for PlayStation 2,Red Flag Linux,Red Hat Enterprise Linux and derivatives:CentOS
ASPLinux, Scientific Linux, SUSE, Linux/openSUSE, ArkLinux, Yellow Dog Linux
PLD Linux Distribution, Linux XP
TurboLinux,openmamba.
