Description Derek Anderson 2004-11-03 14:43:31 EST
Description of problem:
Create a VG and then create a new LV on it.  Change type dropdown to
"Gigabytes" and click "Use Remaining Space".  Give it a Name and click

Result on the command line:
  Insufficient free extents (92782) in volume group VG1: 92783 required

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

How reproducible:
Depending on the size of your VG, %100.  You may get lucky and the
rounding will not cause a problem.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Create LV on VG
2.  Use Remaining Space in Gigabytes
Actual results:
LV not created, "Insufficient free extents (17151) in volume group
VG2: 17152 required"

Expected results:
LV created.

This is fixed in the upcoming 0.9.9-1.0 build. Now if the user wishes
to  use all remaining space on the VG for a new LV, clicking the 'use
remaining space' button stores the extents available, and passes the
discrete number of extents left to the lvcreate command. Yes, the case
where a user clicks the button, then edits the Size field before
clicking OK is covered! :-)

Verified in system-config-lvm-0.9.9-1.0.
