Thank you David for replay
I've created on a second PC the PV-VG and LV but .... partman doesn't
recognize the volumes...

I'm still trying to install debian / on a LVM.
Naturally, I have created a /boot on /dev/sda1 with fs ext3.
This is the log saved on my slug:
Jan 31 16:30:16 partman-lvm: Physical volume "/dev/sda5"
Jan 31 16:32:00 partman-lvm: Volume group "vg"

score 167 and children.

Your computer ran out of memory while the LVM volumes were being
and the kernel started killing processes which leaves the installation
process in an undefined state.
How much memory does the computer that you are trying to install on
When you say slug I assume you mean a Linksys NSLU2? I seem to
it has 32Mb of RAM?
If that is the case I'm afraid there's not a whole lot we can do
right now (unless the out-of-memory condition was the result of a
as a massive memory leak) as reducing the memory usage of the
a long-term project which requires intrusive changes (i.e. not
to do shortly before a release).
What you might be able to do is to make sure that some sort of swap is
setup (manually, e.g. on some kind of USB-attached storage) before you
attempt the LVM setup steps.
