Description Lutz Lange 2008-02-05 08:34:59 EST
Description of problem:
There is no way in text mode to create volume groups and logical volumes. The
LVM Button is missing. 

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

How reproducible:
linux text
create pv
... no way to create vg and lv
( other that is than using dmsetup on virtual console )

Expected results:
Use of lvm button to create vgs and lvs
Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2008-02-05 10:16:27 EST
There's just no room in text mode to have the same level of detailed partition
configuration that is possible in the graphical installer.  This unfortunately
means that some things (like LVM) simply cannot be added without major work
that'll make the screen extremely cumbersome to use.
