Hi,i decided to install CentOS 4.7 in my pc ,because i want a RPM based distribution to install Maya 2009 (3d design application) and use it for 3d design.
Create a Volume group of 700 GB for with 3 Logical volumes (/swap 4GB ,/home 350GB , and debian / 20 GB and 326GB free space). Outside LVM , the debian /boot and CentOS / 30 GB , having about 19.5 GB free
I think this is a option,first install debian,and then CentOS,then go to debian grub and chainload to CentOS grub.
But perhaps there is another thing that could be done,that is put the CentOS partition inside the LVM,inside the Volume group,and have another /boot for CentOS outside the LVM (two /boot ,one debian,one CentOS)
So the second option is create a Volume group of 730 GB for with 4 Logical volumes (/swap 4GB ,/home 350GB , and debian / 20 GB CentOS / 30GB and 326GB free space). Outside LVM , the debian /boot and CentOS /boot, having about 19 GB free
I think the ideal situation is have all partitions except the two /boot inside LVM , but i dont know if i can have two /boot with same name , or one of then have diferent name (like /bootdeb) so be able to have two boot and no have problems (perhaps there is a way of use only one boot , but i think is a bit bad idea perhaps , or more difficult compared with other alternatives).
Thanks to the developers and all the stuff of CentOS for this great distribution,and thanks all people for their help,in advance
what people do you think , what is the better way to have a LVM,be able to extend/resize partitions and be able to dual boot ?
Unable to find the kernel source tree for the currently running kernel. Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your kernel and that they are properly configured; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you have the 'kernel-source' or 'kernel-devel' RPM installed. If you know the correct kernel source files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the '--kernel-source-path' command line option.

Nvidia rmp from Rpmforge is like the native nvidia installer , but packed using rpm no ?
But having the same kernel and kernel-devel , the nvidia installer should work no ?
