Description Paul W. Frields 2005-05-24 18:00:09 EDT
Description of problem:

I noticed this problem while making screenshots for the upcoming Fedora
Installation Guide.  It is not a showstopper, but is misleading and possibly
confusing to users.  This seems to happen when a disk has pre-existing LVM

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

How reproducible:
Every time, AFAICT.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start with a disk with a pre-existing LVM setup.  My guest OS has a 40 GB
disk ("sda") available, that had a ~100 MB /boot partition (ext3), a ~3200 MB
LVM partition/PV, and a ~300 MB swap partition.
2. Boot FC4t3 anaconda and manually partition disk.
3. Remove existing partitions and create new ones:  ~100 MB fixed /boot (ext3,
sda1), ~40 GB LVM PV (sda2).
4. Select "LVM" button to enter "Make LVM Volume Group" dialog.

Actual results:
Size of VG member sda2 is displayed as 3200 MB, which is incorrect.

Expected results:
Size of sda2 should be ~40000 MB.

Additional info:
I am using VMware but would not expect different behavior from a "real" machine
(which I don't have available to test).  Because this is not a showstopper bug,
I wouldn't expect it to be fixed for FC4 final, but I will be happy to test the
bug with the final release on a "real" machine.  Unfortunately, I have none
available at present, but will in June.

Chris -- can you take a look at this?  If the fix is simple enough, it'd be good
to get into FC4 although it is late :/

Committed a fix to head and fc4-branch.
