Description Milan Kerslager 2004-12-16 16:19:36 EST
As you see below, I created VG with PE size 8kB under RHEL4b2 (LVM2)
on an 120GB HDD. Then I created VG and then LV with 13107200 LE (PE)

Under LVM1 number of PE (LE) has been limited to 65535 and this causes
a lot of headaches because LV size limit.

The man page for vgcreate should be fixed for LVM2 to describe this
change and maybe suggestion to convert LVM1 to LVM2 to remove this
