Description of problem:
After my failed attempt to create a logical volume mounted on /media
in bug #128824 (which I now realise shouldn't've worked because /media
not only exists but it in use) I tried to delete the logical volume
and re-create it mounted somewhere else. I can't :-(
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Choose the logical view in system-config-lvm
2. Select the logical volume you want to remove (it acquires some nice
white pinstripes to show it's been selected)
3. Click on "Remove Selected Logical Volumes(s)"
Actual Results: A dialog box pops up saying "Are you quite certain
that you wish to remove the Logical Volume lv_media?" (It's nice and
chatty, but perhaps a little overly verbose, but I'm being picky
here.) When you click on "Yes" you get and error dialog box that
says 'lvremove command failed. Command attempted "/usr/sbin/lvremove
--force lv_media". This is clearly wrong since it doesn't specify the
volume group -- and an error message sent to the console (Volume group
"lv_media" not found) underlines this.
Also are you going to use gtk.main() instead of the deprecated
Expected Results: The volume group should've been removed.
If I select the logical volume by name from the left hand panel and
click on "Remove Logical Volume" it is actually removed.
Sorry, I meant bug #138824.
