I had tried to do some test with LVM on a loopback device
follwing some tutorials on the web.
I get errors.
what I do is this:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/work/tmp/disk-image count=10240
mount -o loop /work/tmp/disk-image /work/loop/ 78 14:23
Failed to wipe new metadata area
/dev/loop1: Format-specific setup of physical volume failed. Failed
to setup physical volume "/dev/loop1"
what did I do wrong ?
