LVM Filesystem Configuration ORIN NX 16GB

Hi, I am trying to configure LVM filesystem on NVME, Can I specifiy the filesystem type as LVM instead of basic which is basically ext4 as such:

<filesystem_type> lvm </filesystem_type>

Hi retro,

Are you using the devkit or custom board for Orin NX?
What’s your Jetpack version in use?

We’ve not configured nor verified the rootfs as lvm.
May I know what’s your use case to use lvm instead of ext4?

Hi I am using the official B02 board. I flashed it using R35.2.1, so I am assuming Jetpack 5.1 .

I am configuring it because I need to change start and address easily for partition as I am setting up separated partition such as /var /log, and my end user should be able to change it according to their needs.

I’ve checked this with internal.
It seems we’ve not supported and verified the use case of LVM as filesystem type.
You might need to configure some drivers in kernel for LVM support.
If you have this requirement, I would suggest using the latest JP.5.1.2(R35.4.1) and start from flash.

May I check what exacts drivers would I need to add in when I recompile my kernel? Also can I check that I can onyl specify basic in </filesystem_type>? What other values can i use? For e.g. ext3 ext4?

Sorry that as I mentioned before, we’ve not supported and verified with this use case, and it might cause the OTA update failed.

You could refer to different XML files for the filesystem_type.
The basic specifies a “raw” partition.

Hi, with I am trying to move it to LVM with reference to raspbian - Easy backups and snapshots of a running system with LVM - Raspberry Pi Stack Exchange, which is a ARM64 based system. I am consulting on what is the /boot/config.txt equivalent for Jetson?

You could check if /boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf is what you need.
