GEOM_LINUX_LVM(4)      FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual	     GEOM_LINUX_LVM(4)

NAME
     geom_linux_lvm -- GEOM based Linux	LVM logical volume mapping

SYNOPSIS
     To	compile	this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your
     kernel configuration file:

	   options GEOM_LINUX_LVM

     Alternatively, to load the	driver as a module at boot time, place the
     following line in loader.conf(5):

	   geom_linux_lvm_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The geom_linux_lvm	framework provides support for mapping Linux LVM vol-
     umes to GEOM providers.  geom_linux_lvm currently supports	linear stripes
     with segments on one or more physical disks.  The parser is able to read
     LVM2 Text Format metadata,	the logical volumes will be assembled and made
     available under /dev/linux_lvm/.  The metadata is read-only, logical vol-
     umes cannot be allocated or resized.

EXAMPLES
     To	view which geom_linux_lvm devices are available:

	   # geom linux_lvm list
	   Geom	name: vg1
	   Providers:
	   1. Name: linux_lvm/vg1-home
	      Mediasize: 4294967296 (4.0G)
	      Sectorsize: 512
	      Mode: r0w0e0
	   2. Name: linux_lvm/vg1-logs
	      Mediasize: 4294967296 (4.0G)
	      Sectorsize: 512
	      Mode: r0w0e0
