Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 158696
Anaconda/Disk Druid displays wrong size for LVM VG member in VG dialog.

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):
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.
Size of VG member sda2 is displayed as 3200 MB, which is incorrect.
Size of sda2 should be ~40000 MB.
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.
