Package: debian-installer
Version: etch 4.0r0
Severity: minor

*** Please type your report below this line ***


This issue did not cause any problems during the installation, but I don't think it is intended behaviour, so I've guessed "minor" severity.

This seems to be the same problem as reported for partman-auto-lvm,
e.g. #407164, BUT it applies to the "non-auto" case, where:
  I manually partition the disk, with
    /dev/sda1  ext3  mountpoint "/"
    /dev/sda2  LVM
  I manually input a VG name, eg host00-0.
  I manually input a few LVs
After rebooting into the installed system, 'df' shows, for example,
the /usr/ partition as the device

So I think this is a distinct issue, feel free to close if it's not.
I looked briefly at the code but could not find which udeb this might
be occurring in, so I'm filing this against the installer.

This issue was noticed after I submitted #428139, details of the
system installation are there.

Thanks for your work,

This is actually how things are supposed to be.
The device mapper doubles hyphens in a LV/VG names exactly so it can 
distinguish between hyphens _inside_ an LV or VG name and a hyphen used 
as separator _between_ them.

As this is not a bug, I'm closing your report.
