I've got a Gentoo box that I'm interested in switching over to an Ubuntu box.
I currently have the partitions laid out using a mixture of RAID (mdadm) and LVM2, as specified in this document .
Ideally I'd like to just wipe out the non /home partition, as it's got data I'd like to keep.
Is it possible to reuse the current setup, or do I need to restart? vgdisplay, vgchange -a y, etc don't yield any results from the Ubuntu LiveCD, and I'm wary to run any commands that might wipe my data.
Your help would be appreciated.
