I agree, but as: - this is a new component - it really improves error handling in a critical component (partitioning can easily destroy data after all) - the templates are very unlikely to be shown anyway - we are not really in a string freeze I think we need to do this. We can wait a few days for translations, but IMO should _not_ press translators to update. > Proposal: > _Description: Existing physical volume in the selected device > LVM cannot automatically partition devices which already contain > one or more more physical volumes. There is a big difference between "LVM cannot autopartion" and "Autopartitioning using LVM is not possible" though... I'll think of something. > > +Template: partman-auto-lvm/vg_exists > > +Type: error > > +_Description: Volume group name already in use > > + The volume group name used to automatically partition using LVM is > > + already in use.

Hm? Which other package? It's just that the question is not asked at high/critical priority with current code. Alternative of course would be to scratch that and, if there is a name conflict, always ask the user to enter an alternative name for the VG (i.e. at critical priority). I thought of doing that, but did not really want to change current functionality at this moment. Thanks for your comments.
