[linux-lvm] pvcreate problem on ia64 with GPT



Hello,

I created on my boot disk a partition with parted (/dev/sda6).
But when I want to create a pv with that partition, no way, it does not 
work.
It seems that the pvcreate command still use the MBR informations :-(

Did anybody have a clue (or better, a solution) to solve this issue ?

Thank's,
Eric.
