Okay before I actually reboot my PC I need to know if my lvm is setup right.
So I have 2 hard drives and setup a lvm.  Now I don't have an issue with how I setup the lvm as I followed the gentoo how to.
Its grub i'm iffy with.
Now most if not all my partitions are logical volumes.
Soda is partitioned like so.
sda1 32m bios boot partition
sda2 111.8 Linux lvm
sdb1 1tb. Linux lvm.
Logical volumes.
Boot
Swap
Root
Home
Virtual group
Fun
So /dev/mapper/fun-boot. Would be my boot part ion.
So in grub its set root(fun-boot)
I also have dolvm at the end of the kernel line.
Lvm is easy with arch, just iffy on fun too.
Was posted from my phone.

You shouldn't have a /boot lv, just a separate /boot partition. Grub can't read lvm. Are you having a specific problem with grub, or just double-checking your work?

Double checking, thanks, what worked in arch..not so much gentoo/funtoo(yes I'm using funtoo, mainly for .git portage).

I figured out I couldn't do a boot lvm once I got into my system only to find... my keyboard wasn't working and I forgot to add input devices to the make.conf file...

never emerged xorg input drivers and edev, my fault I guess.

You could put your boot data on an lvm, but I don't know that it would do you any good :wink: last time I checked grub couldn't read lvm.
Are you saying you didn't have keyboard at all or just inside X? The former means you missed the option in kernel config.
