[linux-lvm] physical volume smaller than partition?



Hi there.

i just did pvcreate on this partition:
sda4	Primary	Linux LVM 	298067.70MB=291.08..GB (from cfdisk)

like this:
levinja ~ # pvcreate /dev/sda4
  Physical volume "/dev/sda4" successfully created

then i took a look at it's size:
levinja ~ # pvdisplay
  --- NEW Physical volume ---
  PV Name               /dev/sda4
  VG Name
  PV Size               277.60 GB
  Allocatable           NO
  PE Size (KByte)       0
  Total PE              0
  Free PE               0
  Allocated PE          0
  PV UUID               Sek0cg-xmPI-xQml-9JE1-19VQ-Ht8I-P4PSEk

and noticed 277.60 GB != 291.08..GB. So my question is where did the rest of disk space went to?

Thanx for reply.
Martin
