Right, I initially created a LVM partition at the beginning of the disk,
then went back to change the first into a small /boot partition and put
the LVM partition after that.
So it is sda1 which is recognized as a pv.

How can I fix it?



[OS/2] was a system created _for_ users instead of _by_ users.  Think of the
great successes in the computing world: C, Unix, the internet, the web.  All
of them were developed by people who were just trying to use them, as the
tools they used which they modified and extended in response to their needs.
This is why C is a better language than pascal, why the internet beat
compuserve, and why Unix was better than OS/2.
