Description Aaron Kurtz 2005-04-12 18:07:40 UTC
Description of problem:
In LVM, putting a physical volume on a disk rather than on a disk partition is
a perfectly legitimate thing to do. I have one disk configured so, and there is
no problem mounting the logical volumes on it in /etc/fstab.
Anaconda doesn't check for this during the disk partitioning step, however, and
instead offers to initialize the drive, wiping out the LVM pv. After I decline,
it shows the volume group and logical volumes on the disk, but refuses to let me
point mount points on the logical volumes, as it doesn't find any physical

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): FC4t2 anaconda
Actual results: anaconda is not aware of disk-wide physical volumes

Expected results: anaconda should handle disk-wide physical volumes without
