Description Alexandre Oliva 2003-02-18 00:06:59 UTC
If there's a logvol entry that preserves or formats an existing logical volume,
the --size option is unnecessary, as it could be probed from disk.  Currently,
the installer aborts if the kickstart file has such a logvol line without --size.

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2003-02-20 07:12:57 UTC
Agreed.  Fixed in CVS
