[linux-lvm] fdisk and the LVM partition.



Hi,

	Is anyone actively pursuing getting the LVM partition ID
"Registered"?

	  I got a little tee-d off with the LVM partition showing 
'Unknown' so I fixed my fdisk with this patch to i386_sys_types.c

*** i386_sys_types.c    Fri Jan 19 09:30:07 2001
--- i386_sys_types.c.new        Fri Jan 19 09:29:52 2001

--- 58,64 ----
        {0x85, N_("Linux extended")},
        {0x86, N_("NTFS volume set")},
        {0x87, N_("NTFS volume set")},
+       {0x8e, N_("LVM Physical volume")}, /* LVM http://www.sistina.com/lvm/ */
        {0x93, N_("Amoeba")},
        {0x94, N_("Amoeba BBT")},       /* (bad block table) */
        {0xa0, N_("IBM Thinkpad hibernation")},     



	So now my fdisk knows about LVM partitions.

	While checking that fdisk still worked correctly I was reminded
the we used to use Partition type 'fe' but I guess that got stolen by LANstep. 

	I changed the type of my 'fe' to '8e' and rebooted no problems.
Though I guess I can't go back to my old and I mean "really" old kernel.  :-)

	
Regards,
Tom.
