Bug#260763: [powerpc] Problems with logical volume setup during installation


I was using d-i daily build for powerpc (Jan 4, 2005) to install on an
Apple Dual G5 (PowerMac7,3).

I find that the LVM menu items in the installer do not work in a
manner very similar to what is described in this bug report (though
this report is for a x86 machine). 

Basically I cannot create physical volumes (using expert- too) via the
menus, and the LV menus then clearly do not work. It seems that the
options described in the latest installation guide (, to use a
partition as a PV for LVM) just do not show up!

Because my hardware is really new the d-i daily build is not quite
ready though a solution is in place, please see #287030 for details.
This is why I don't want to write an installation report just yet.

Please let me know how you want to proceed with this issue (new bug?
work with this one? retitle it?). I can easily reproduce this
situation, and I'm willing to spend time on it.

Best regards,
