Re: [linux-lvm] LVM tool limitation on using whole disk



Thanks for your reply.

It should work if I make a LVM from HDD device, not using MD.
However, using fdisk to make a big ONE partition for RAID then
make it for MD.  Then I should not wife this partition block out.

I never try it yet but I think it is.

Am I wrong?

Any other suggestions?
