Re: [linux-lvm] vg works fine under FC3, but not FC4



Thanks, I guess the right way to do this is to use fdisk to remove partitions 1 and 5, then extend the lv to cover the whole disk, then use resize2fs or ext2resize to resize the filesystem
 
This seems preferrable to reverting to version 2.00 and maintaining an old version
 
Thanks, John

Check for a bogus partition table.

If a device (e.g. /dev/hdd) is partitioned, you can't use /dev/hdd as the PV
but have to use one of its partitions instead e.g. /dev/hdd1.
If something like this happened, you need to remove the partition table.
