~LVM (Logical Volume Manager) is a layer between a filesystem and the physical disk partitions.
~It is useful for resizing partitions and moving data in live situations.
~[[Slacko|Slacko 6.3.2]] already has LVM present but needs logical volumes (LVs) to be 'activated'. Older Puppies will require lvm to be install first, see link below (test by using ##lvdisplay## command). [[Fatdog64]] has LVM working 'out of the box'.
