LVM partition cannot be edited during "Create custom layout" install
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:06 EST
Description of problem:
Installing from F7 KDE i686 LiveCD to LVM PV. Selected "Create custom layout",
edit /dev/sda1 for /boot (preserve), select VolGroup00/LogVol02, then Edit.
Window pops up "Not enough physical volumes", stating "At least one unused
physical volume partition....."
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Once, so far.
Steps to Reproduce:
Edit the LV for / in a multiboot grub system.
Hmm. On my Opteron server, I'm able to edit lvm partitions as I would expect -
not sure what differences to look for... server has several vg's over two 160 GB
SATA disks (Vendor: ATA Model: ST3160812AS), whereas the desktop system
(AMD Athlon(tm) XP 1900+) has a single vg/hd (Model=WDC WD400BB-00FJA0).
Simple enough work-around : set the partition type to 8e (Linux LVM). The
partition type had been 83 (Linux), so parted thinks no lvm partitions are
available, even though lvm had already activated the volume group just fine and
presented the partitions to me for the custom layout.
I think a better solution would be consistency - surely I should be able to edit
the custom layout that anaconda itself presented to me....

I've just tested this on F-8 Test 1 and it's working fine. Thanks for the report.
