Re: [linux-lvm] File System type on (LVM) partition

You completely missed our point. LVM is *not* a filesystem. It is a layer
you can put on top of physical storage, and on top of LVM you can create
logical volumes which contain filesystems.

Now if your real question is: how can you check if a block device (ie
a storage device) contains a PV (Physical Volume, the lowest layer in
a LVM setup) I suspect there is some magic value on the disk you could
check for.

Someone should probably write some file(1) magic for it :)
