Bug#247182: partman-lvm: Won't create VG during install
-- System Information:
Debian Release: testing/unstable

System is a Dell Poweredge 600sc, with IDE Raid.
Sorry for any errors in this, I'm new to Debian, and especially the
installer. Using the beta 4 of the installer, i'm attempting to
configure LVM. I set up the general partitions, no problem. Size them
as appropriate. Want to work with LVM, to see how it handles, so I
create a PV, it's now designated as a LVM, etc- no problem. I believe
all this is partman.
I then go to configure LVM. it writes the map, etc. I hit VG. Create
VG. Systems offers me a box to select PV. It lets me select with
spacebar, but doesn't let me move to continue or go back. only way out
of this is to hit ESC. I do, and it says name the VG. This does not
seem to be the correct behavior, since once I do, it then leaves me at
the VG menu. No VG is created...
I might just be doing this wrong.. but it would seem that it was
nonobvious if it is working ok.
