Hi all,

This is wrt f10.

I have an 80G drive.  When I installed f10 I chose a custom layout for it.
 My intent was to have a separate /boot partition, swap partition, and 4
lvms of approx. 20G each.

When all was said and done the drive ended up looking like this:

/dev/sda1   *           1          13      104391   83  Linux
/dev/sda2              14        2435    19454715   83  Linux
/dev/sda3            2436        4857    19454715   8e  Linux LVM
/dev/sda4            4858        9964    41021977+   5  Extended
/dev/sda5            4858        7279    19454683+  8e  Linux LVM
/dev/sda6            7280        7406     1020096   82  Linux swap /
/dev/sda7            7407        9964    20547103+  8e  Linux LVM

Certainly not what I intended.

Tried lvdisplay and got no results.  Tried lvscan first then lvdisplay and
got the same outcome.  vgdisplay, ditto.  pvdisplay, nada.  fdisk seems to
think there are logical volumes.

cat /etc/mtab and I see this: /dev/mapper/pdc_gdgdgcfhp1 (and 2).  In fact
in /dev/mapper there are 9 of these.

Anybody know where this is documented?  Is lvm dead?  Inquiring minds want
to know ;)

Thanks for any insight,
Mike Wright

I think what you really want is one volume group and four logical volumes. I
think you created 3 volume groups but perhaps someone with more LVM
experience would know better.

Been using and enjoying lvm2 for quite a while. What you describe is exactly what I wanted.

I thought I'd done this correctly. Done it many times before. I guess I screwed it up but wasn't sure whether it was me or the new installer.
