I am new to using Manjaro Linux. I made the switch after using Ubuntu in a developer environment for school and used Windows to play video games. I have noticed the huge advancements in Linux gaming and I decided to test it out.
I have attempted to use LVM from this guide ‘5.4.7. Creating LVM Cache Logical Volumes’. I found that guide on a redhat post. The issue with LVM is that when I attempt the first step being
'# pvcreate /dev/sde1
I am returned with this
“Can’t open /dev/sdb5 exclusively. Mounted filesystem?”
I also attempted to use bcache. While it seemed like I just forgot to install all the tools, but when I attempt to reinstall any of the git clones it states the destination paths exist already.
When I try to use make-bcache -B /dev/sda4 -C /dev/sdb5 My terminal spits out “bash: make-bcache: command not found”.
Am I just grazing over something on either of these tools or maybe treat me like I am 5 guides to either of them. If you can pass along any knowledge I please ask you for it and I appreciate it! I would like to use ssd caching.
