Re: [linux-lvm] root on lvm



Here is the test I have been doing. Sory but I have to translate the
french message then they will bot be exact.
Installing Mandrake,
When partitionning I ask for personal, then for expert.
- hda1 : LVM for linuw.
- Add to vg rootvg
In root vg
- 1rst partition / 3000 mb reiserfs
- 2nd partition swap 1500 mb
- 3rd partition 15000 mb

rest of the vg unaffected.

All installation went well until stage : installation of boot manager.
Then a window came saying 
=================================
L'installation du programme d'amorçage a échoué
pour la raison suivante
: Fatal: Sorry, don't know how to handle device 0xfe00
=================================

That means : The installation of the boot loader failed because of the
following reason : Fatal ...

And of corse the system is not able to boot!

Pascal Garcia
