Description of problem:
I already have a LVM volume group called "volume", which consists of hda5, and
has some logical volumes in them.
I can't add hda3 to this volume group in disk druid.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Partition with disk druid
2.Select a piece of free disk space
4.Change file system type to LVM, and OK
5.Select an already existing volume group
Actual Results: I don't see the newly created LVM partition, with an unchecked
checkbox in the "Edit LVM Volume group" dialog.
Expected Results: I expected to be able to click on the checkbox next to my
newly created LVM partition, so it can be added to that volume group.
The Volume group I'm talking about has been created manually in my previous
distribution, and already contains some logical volumes.
The operation of extending a volume group and/or expanding filesystems within a
volume group are not currently supported.
You can use the lvm utilities to do this operation in rescue mode after you've
completed an installation if this is necessary.
