[disks-admin] sees each lvm partition as an harddrive

Bug #21303 reported by Hidde Brugmans on 2005-09-10
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gnome-system-tools (Ubuntu)
Sebastien Bacher

Bug Description

I just found out about System > Administration > Disks

It doesn't seem to handle lvm at all at the moment.
It lists my 80gb /dev/hda unmounted windows disk just fine, then it lists my
280gb main disk, with the 250ish mb /boot, and the rest lvm, but it has no idea
how much free space there is.

Then It lists 5 non-existing hard drives, no information shown, no partitions
found. no information whatsoever.
I assume there are my lvm partitions (/ /home /tmp swap) and /proc.

I see this also. It shows the LVM primary partition /dev/hda2 as unused, and
has a button there to format it with, and then below the icon for /dev/hda there
is another one, and that displays the two LV that are on /dev/hda2. This is
confusing and probably should not be shipped with Breezy, and certainly must be
fixed for Dapper!
