I've installed via apt-get lvm2:
(precise)root@localhost:~# apt-get install lvm2 Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done The following NEW packages will be installed: lvm2 0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded. Need to get 0 B/388 kB of archives.

So here is the error when trying to create a snapshot volume:
(precise)root@localhost:/var/lib/postgresql/9.1/main/base# lvcreate -L100M -s -n lvsnapvol /var/lib/postgresql/9.1/main/base/16399 FATAL: Module dm_snapshot not found. /sbin/modprobe failed: 1 snapshot: Required device-mapper target(s) not detected in your kernel Run `lvcreate --help' for more information.
I realize this is a bit different than normal but this is a arm chromebook running linux (3.8.11) via crouton. I hope this helps. Thank you for any assistance that y'all can provide.
