The file is definitely in the distribution, where it is supposed to be. I have
checked this 6 ways from Sunday!

Well, I played around with this some more.  

First of all I remove system-config-lvm and removed
/usr/share/system-config-lvm.  I then reinstalled the rpm.  Here is what I found

* Invoking this from the Desktom->System Setting->Logical Volume Management
doesn't bring up this tool.  The little time icon runs for a while and then it

* invoking "system-config-lvm" from the command line results in the renderer not
found message coming up.

* invoking "sudo system-config-lvm" (ie as root) brings the tool up and it seems
to work.

* invoking "system-config-lvm" after running it previously as root will result
in a message "Please restart /usr/sbin/system-config-lvm with root permissions"

* Using the menu to invoke the tool still doesn't work.

Some observations:  in other tools the python files *.py are read-execute by
group and others.  In system-config-lvm, they are not.  When I invoke the tool
as root the *.pyc files get created as read by everyone.

I couldn't figure out why invoking it from the menu doesn't bring up the login
as root prompt that all the other tools provide.

Remember I am using a fresh install of FC4T3 so this is the state of lvm as it
came from rawhide.

Ok I found out what is wrong.  The entry in
/usr/share/applications/system-config-lvm.desktop lists the exec path as
/usr/sbin/system-config-lvm instead of /usr/bin/system-config-lvm.

Moving to ON_QA.

Fedora Core 3 and Fedora Core 4 are no longer supported. If you could retest
this issue on a current release or on the latest development / test version, we
would appreciate that. Otherwise, this bug will be marked as CANTFIX one month
from now. Thanks for your help and for your patience.
