Description Jan Sabbe 2002-09-09 19:26:49 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020809

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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Partition with disk druid
2.Select a piece of free disk space
3.Click edit
4.Change file system type to LVM, and OK
5.Select an already existing volume group
6.Click edit

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.

Additional info:

The Volume group I'm talking about has been created manually in my previous
distribution, and already contains some logical volumes.

Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2003-02-03 20:52:47 UTC
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.
