Or is that in sectors?
So 32768 would actually be 16MiB (assuming 512 bytes/sector)?
The Kickstart manual isn't clear on that.

P.S.  Am I correct in assuming that the 65534 number of extents limit
per logical volume (LV) is a 32-bit limitation?  Or it is absolute
(64-bit too)?

Thanks Bryan, this was the answer I was looking for. I should have asked the question a better way. I know that pesize means physical extents, but I wasn't sure where the 32768 number came from. If its indeed in 512 bytes, then it makes perfect sense.

Thanks again
