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



The other thing I thought of doing is sending the output of

  vgcreate -vd main_vg /dev/hda2

but first I would need to delete the main_vg that is already there, but I
can't because of the error:

# vgremove main_vg
vgremove -- ERROR: can't remove active volume group "main_vg"

I can't even display info:

# vgdisplay
vgdisplay -- "/etc/lvmtab.d/main_vg" doesn't exist
vgdisplay -- volume group "main_vg" not found

Any help on this would be most appreciated.  Even just to get rid of
main_vg so I can try again!

Thanks,

Mark.
