F7T4 : Unable to install on existing LVM : 1 PV of 2 detected
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:04 EST
I have 2 x 250 Gb hard disk. 1 PV on each.
My VG is about 500 Gb, with 200 Free
Anaconda detect my VG but only 1 PV.
So for anaconda :
Total space : 250 Gb
Used space : 300 Gb
Free space : -50 Gb
I can't create ou modify existing LV.
So installation is not possible.
Reading the anaconda sources, i see that it get le "pvlist" from partition table
rather than from "pvscan" result.
After changing the partition type to "LVM PV" using fdisk, installation works fine.
I had a similar issue trying to install F7 to an existing LVM group from a FC5
install. Every time I tried to do anything related with LVM, I got an 'not
enough physical volumes' error. This was a ppc machine, so no fdisk. But using
parted to set the lvm flag on existing partitions worked.
