Description of problem:
When ever you choose automatic partioning it creates a VG and assigns entire VG
extents to "/" LV. This effects the flexebility LVM has to offer for an operator
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Everytime upon a fresh installation
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from FC6-T2
2. Select autopatitioning when prompted
automatic partioning it creates a VG and assigns entire VG extents to a single
LV , this effects the flexebility LVM has to offer for an operator.
It seems that partitioning desicion should follow package selection and a much
flexible LVM setup should be suggested in autopartioning, eg. for file-systems
such as /usr, /opt, /home, /tmp, /var, /srv, etc. .
(probably this bug/enhancement might not be suitable for FC6 maybe FC7)
Unfortunately, lots of LVs makes management harder for the default case
especially as we can't do online shrinking of filesystems.
