this should have been entered as a bug.
I could use some more information on what the changes were and how it should be
Previous release of s-c-lvm wasn't able to detect and display unpartitioned
space. That includes hard drives with no partition tables, rendering new hard
drives invisible to user.
1. Make sure that partition tables are properly detected and displayed,
including unpartitioned space.
2. Empty hard drives should be initializable; s-c-lvm should prompt for a choice
of creating a partition encompassing whole drive or using it unpartitioned.
3. Empty space on partitioned drives shouldn't be initializable.
4. All partitions, except active swaps and extended partitions, should be
initializable. If partition contains filesystem or mounted filesystem,
explanatory warning should pop-up.
Verified on 1.0.5-1.0.
