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).

Comment 2 Jerry Amundson 2007-06-09 05:36:33 UTC
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.
