    Re: Grub and Fedora 18

    You have to install the lvm2 driver in Ubuntu and then mount Fedora, so grub2 can find it. Then it works.

    There is little advantage to LVM if really using it as one partition amount many. It is intended as an entire drive (or more) to make it easy to resize partitions. But it adds a level of complication. Many here multi-booting just install Fedora to a partition.

    Thanks for the advice! I didn't realize there were lvm2 drivers available.

    For other newbies out there, here are the commands in order to install lvm2 on Ubuntu.
    sudo -i
    apt-get install lvm2
    modprobe dm-mod
    vgchange -a y
    Now Fedora boots fine. Thanks again, everyone!
