Description Laurent GAUTROT 2006-11-16 04:32:16 EST
Request for enhancement about system-config-lvm

I'd like to initialize a software RAID from system-config-lvm, but I can't.

If the md has previously been initialized by pvcreate, it is displayed in the list.

It would be nice if the step of initialization for RAID was available in this

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

system-config-lvm 1.0.18

Steps to Reproduce:
% dd if=/dev/zero of=/tmp/md0-1 bs=100M count=1
1+0 enregistrements lus
1+0 enregistrements écrits
104857600 octets (105 MB) copiés, 0,308893 seconde, 339 MB/s
% dd if=/dev/zero of=/tmp/md0-2 bs=100M count=1
1+0 enregistrements lus
1+0 enregistrements écrits
104857600 octets (105 MB) copiés, 0,446697 seconde, 235 MB/s

% sudo losetup /dev/loop1 /tmp/md0-1
% sudo losetup /dev/loop2 /tmp/md0-2
% sudo mdadm -C /dev/md0 -l 1 -n 2 /dev/loop{1,2}
mdadm: array /dev/md0 started.
% cat /proc/mdstat
Personalities : [raid1] 
md0 : active raid1 loop2[1] loop1[0]
      102336 blocks [2/2] [UU]
unused devices: <none>
% system-config-lvm

Actual results:

At that time you won't see the uninitialized RAID

Expected results:

To see it, obviously
