I'll start some background that can be skipped:
I have an ubuntu machine that I installed some time ago with the default partitioning on a an 80GB hard drive. The machine runs has rTorrent that starts downloading torrents in a folder that gets updated from Dropbox. During the downloads, the files are in a folder called
Downlods. When the downloads are complete, they are moved to
Public. Both folders are shared on my home network (open folders shared with windows). I just got my hands on two new (well, you know, newish. They are 80GB each) hard drives and I wanted to give
Public some more space.
I did my research, and concluded that lvm is the way to go. I followed a howto and was able to mount my new lv (called lvDownloads) to my
Public folder and share it. After reboot, the lv didn't mount and it does not mount manually (
sudo mount /dev/sysvg/lvdownloads /home/usr/Public).
Is lvm my best course of action? Can it be shared and automounted? Should I try an move my current install to lvm too?
Skip until here
I created an lv partition on an ubuntu 12.04 server system.
sudo mount /dev/sysvg/lvdownloads /home/usr/Public does not seem to work after restart. I get:
mount: special device /dev/sysvg/lvdownloads does not exist

How do I auto automount it on startup?
