Description Joshua Jensen 2007-06-14 16:35:47 UTC
Description of problem:

You all need an ntfs-config component!

ntfs-config does not understand LVM or /dev/mapper fstab entries.  This is a
basic functionality problem, and needs to be fixed.

See attached screenshot

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

Could you give me the following ouput command ?

# ntfs-config --d -q all


# more /proc/partitions

Just print them to standard text file and upload them somehere.

Hi Joshua,

Thanks for the debugging information. But you should have a look at the warning :
WARNING : Query database without root privilege.
WARNING : Result might be incomplete.

The "#" standed for "run me as root".
ntfs-config resolve mapped device node path with dmsetup that need to be run
as root.

Could you redo this step again as root. Thanks.

Other than that all looks ok. dm-* partition are all resolved as slaves of sda2,
but since it can't get there node path, it ignore them.

But i think there might be a problem anyway. After getting mapped device name 
with dmsetup, it will assume that they are aall in /dev/mapper, which seems to
be not  your case. It probably need to get some basic info from lvm. 

In a try to get this info, could you attach the output of :

# lvscan -b

Tell me if you know better command than that.


Comment 5 Joshua Jensen 2007-06-20 20:43:23 UTC
Output from lvscan -b:

ntfs-config as root

Comment 7 Florent Mertens 2007-06-20 22:34:05 UTC
Why in the hell there is a '-b' options if it don't do what it is intended to do.
Anyway, i think i'll just setup an lvm volume and see what i can do with it.

Thanks a bunch mate, i promise that next version will handle that just right.

Comment 8 Xavier Lamien 2007-06-21 14:33:04 UTC
Florent, thanks for having come to comment about this bug outside of your main
bug report platform for your ntfs-config apps.

Don't forget to report me for some fix, i will look around too ;)

Comment 9 Xavier Lamien 2007-06-26 08:56:39 UTC
It should be fix in RC5.
i'll build it and make some test before import it and bring back some feedback.

Comment 10 Xavier Lamien 2007-06-26 21:40:05 UTC
The RC5 has been built and sounds work.
However i'd like to have an external test and feedback before push it to STABLE.

Josuha, if you don't mind, will you test it with your LVM set ?

here the link:

Comment 11 Joshua Jensen 2007-06-26 22:00:31 UTC
Very nice... it doesn't complain about device mapper devices anymore.

Comment 12 Xavier Lamien 2007-06-26 22:36:35 UTC
okay :)

Other branch were built, i'll push them to stable.

Thanks Josuha.
