Description Jay Turner 2004-11-02 09:05:29 EST
Description of problem:
With system-config-lvm-0.9.6-1.0, I'm getting the following traceback
when attempting to create a logical volume of size 500k.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/system-config-lvm/InputController.py", line 560, in
    proposed_size = float(prop_size)
ValueError: empty string for float()

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to the Logical Volume view of a VG
2. Click "Create New Logical Volume"
3. Enter size as 500k then attempt to create the new LV
Actual results:

Expected results:
I don't get the same traceback if I specify the LV size in megabytes.

Additional info:
Comment 1 Jim Parsons 2004-11-09 23:37:25 EST
This was a regression - fixed @ 0.9.7-1.0
Refactored the way size/units are handled in LV creation, as in bz137930
Comment 2 Derek Anderson 2004-11-11 15:17:47 EST
Verified in system-config-lvm-0.9.8-1.0.

However, now you get an error if the size is specified as a float. 
That is bug #138887.
