[linux-lvm] Re: vgcreate -- ERROR "lvm_tab_read(): size" inserting...



Just writing to say that I have overcome the problem.

The way I did it was to delete /etc/lvmtab and then run vgscan which
seemed to fix things up.

I still don't know what caused the initial error though.  I still think it
might be a bug.

Cheers,

Mark.
