[linux-lvm] mke2fs problem



Okay, I am hoping that someone can help me with this...

I've got a system that I'm trying to get LVM working on.  It's got a 2.4.0-rel kernel running on it, and I've updated to e2fsprogs 1.19.  The Linux install is SuSE 7.0.

I have two drives installed in the system currently.  One of them is the drive that contains the main Linux partitions - /dev/hda is 15GB and has ~12GB free on hda1 that I want to make part of a volume group.  The other, /dev/hdc, is a 60GB which will also become part of the volume group.

I've partitioned them and set the types to 0x8e, and then run the following:
pvcreate /dev/hda3
pvcreate /dev/hdc1
vgcreate mygrp /dev/hda3 /dev/hdc1
lvcreate -i 2 -L 52M -n lv1 mygrp
lvcreate -i 2 -L 12M -n lv2 mygrp
mke2fs /dev/mygrp/lv1
mke2fs 1.19, 13-Jul-2000 for EXT2 FS 0.5b, 95/08/09
Filesystem label=
OS type: Linux
Block size=1024 (log=0)
Fragment size=1024 (log=0)
14336 inodes, 57344 blocks
2867 blocks (5.00%) reserved for the super user
First data block=1
7 block groups
8192 blocks per group, 8192 fragments per group
2048 inodes per group
Superblock backups stored on blocks:
        8193, 24577, 40961

Writing inode tables: done                           
Writing superblocks and filesystem accounting information: done

mke2fs /dev/mygrp/lv2
mke2fs 1.19, 13-Jul-2000 for EXT2 FS 0.5b, 95/08/09
Filesystem label=
OS type: Linux
Block size=1024 (log=0)
Fragment size=1024 (log=0)
4096 inodes, 16384 blocks
819 blocks (5.00%) reserved for the super user
First data block=1
2 block groups
8192 blocks per group, 8192 fragments per group
2048 inodes per group
Superblock backups stored on blocks:
        8193

Writing inode tables: done                           
Writing superblocks and filesystem accounting information: done

I've included the output of the mke2fs command.  Note the surprisingly small number of blocks...!

Here's what lvdisplay /dev/mygrp/lv1 shows:
--- Logical volume ---
LV Name                /dev/mygrp/lv1
VG Name                mygrp
LV Write Access        read/write
LV Status              available
LV #                   1
# open                 0
LV Size                56 MB
Current LE             14
Allocated LE           14
Stripes               2
Stripe size (KByte)   16
Allocation             next free
Read ahead sectors     120
Block device           58:0

So, everything *looks* like it's the right size; but mke2fs seems to think that it's talking to a ~57MB and ~16MB disk, respectively!  What am I doing wrong here?
