Re: [linux-lvm] LVM pretends it has more space than it actually has



Thanks for the reply, however I don't think the size of the blockdev command is incorrect. At least not on my machine. I had already checked that earlier and it looked fine.

This may not be related, but I had a problem with blockdev --getsize in Fedora 14 returning the wrong size for an IDE drive on a USB-IDE/SATA adapter. It
returned the correct size for SATA drives on the USB adapter, and for IDE
drives connected to the internal IDE port. So I chalked this up to wierdness on the (nearly obsolete) USB/IDE interface. But your problem suddenly made me
not so sure.

Now I wonder why LVM wants to pretend it has more space than it actually has. Because when I subtract those sectors from each other, and I calculate how much bytes are in those "pretended sectors", it turns out that that's the exact amount that is missing (1MB).
