LVs are not visible during custom partitioning phase of install, therefor, I could not specify the root partition. LV partitions were created ahead of time with another distro and are seen by Fedora, SuSE, RHEL and Mandriva. I believe they are seen, but not displayed, since I could select LVM and select delete. But I couldn't get them to display on the assignment screen without doing some magic (see next).

There is a workaround, but it should not be needed: go to console 2 and vgscan, vgchange, then back to the partitioner and they are then displayed for editing and assignment.

This is a multi-boot test machine configured with LVM2 on top of software raid5.

Thanks for your report.
Closing as it's an installation report from Etch which isn't supported
Feel free to test and report any issues against the current debian
installer release (Squeeze RC1) which supports more hardware and also
it's improved.


Melhores cumprimentos/Best regards,

Miguel Figueiredo
