Description Phil Knirsch 2004-10-28 10:29:30 EDT
Description of problem:

After setting up a simple physical and logical volume i tried to
remove the logical volume and then afterwards the physical one.

I added a physical volume alled A and then added a logical volume
called B.

In then managed to remove the logical volume B, but the logical view
for A still was there despite the fact that the logical volume B had
been removed.

When i now tried to remove either the logical view or the physical
volume a dialog with an error pops up.

If i try to remove the logical view the message is this:

lvremove command failed. Command attempted: "/usr/sbin/lvremove
--force Unused"

And when i try to remove the complete physical volume i don't get an
error but nothing happens. But when i try to remove the partition from
the physical volume A i get this error:

vgreduce command failed. Command attempted: "/usr/sbin/vgreduce A

So all in call, i was only able to remove the logical volume B. I can
then add the logical volume B again and remove that, but the effect
stays the same.

If i invoke "lvm vgremove" from the commandline it works nicely and
when i then restart the tool i get a clean and unused partition
/dev/hda2 again.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create physical and logical volumes
2. Remove logical volume
3. Try to remove logical view or physical volume
Actual results:

Expected results:

Removal of logical and physical volumes should work without errors.

This ticket describes two issues: 
1) The selection tree was not being updated after an item was deleted
2) PV remove was not giving proper diagnostic messages

Both have been addressed in 0.9.7-1.0
