Re: [linux-lvm] lvm/devfs bug?



its my understanding that pvcreate investigates /proc/partitions for
disk information to create the physical volume. if there are no
partitions defined on a disk in /proc/partitions then why does pvcreate
think there is a partition? am i missing something that pvcreate is
looking at to determine disk information?
