Kickstart Installation using Existing LVM Logical Volume


I am working on a Fedora 8 kickstart installation that should use existing LVM logical volume as home partition. However, it keep failing with an error like this:

Could not allocate requested partitions:

Adding this partition would not leave enough disk space
for already allocated logical volumes in 2008AF_data..

Press 'OK' to exit the installer.

	* 2008AF_data is the name of volume group

The kickstart code dealing with partition is quoted below:

clearpart --all --drives=sda
part /boot --fstype ext3 --size=128
part pv.1 --size=1536 --grow --ondisk=sda
volgroup 2008A6_work pv.1
logvol swap --fstype swap --name=2008A6_swap --vgname=2008A6_work --size=512
logvol /var --fstype ext3 --name=2008A6_var --vgname=2008A6_work --size=512
logvol / --fstype ext3 --name=2008A6_root --vgname=2008A6_work --size=3904
part pv.2 --noformat --onpart sdb1
volgroup 2008AF_data pv.2 --noformat --useexisting
logvol /home --noformat --useexisting --name=2008AF_home --vgname=2008AF_data --fstype ext3

	* 2008AF_home is the name of logical volume to be reused

I already tried without --useexisting, with estimated size (not accurate, but I added --grow), without --fstype, etc. same error.

Any idea what's wrong?
