comment LVM mirror with data and logs mirrored on same 2 devices
Simplest and wrong. One should not have to fiddle with partitions. Actually it is harmful having two partitions on single drive in one VG and creating RAID on top of that: LVM could create both data legs of the RAID device on that device and when it's gone it's gone. c4f4t0r's answer is the correct one.

comment Downloads stuck from a VM run by libvirt (kvm) on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
Any chance you are running out of disk space? libvirt stops the VM if it requires more space in qcow2 image it can not get because of full disk on host. Happened to me and took me a while to figure out why is it "frozen".

comment What is the recommended size for a Linux /boot partition?
For me the distro of choice is SystemRescueCD and Finnix is another nice one.

comment Any way to recover ext4 filesystems from a deleted LVM logical volume?
try inspecting the block device with sudo less -f /dev/sda5 which should show you all recent changes to lvm metadata. This may be more accurate than what vgcfgrestore finds in /etc/lvm especially when the disk is corrupted. Try extracting the right one by timestamp to a file and run vgcfgrestore from the file.
