Package: debian-installer
Severity: minor

Using the hd-media/boot.img.gz of :
- the latest testing (2010-02-11 ?) with debian-testing-amd64-netinst.iso
  dated 2010-03-12,
- Lenny6 / debian-504-amd64-netinst.iso.

There is a bug in the way the LVM wizard calculate the PV and VG sizes after
creating a new partition table. It seems to report the size of the previous

Steps to reproduce :
- take a disk with, for example, /dev/sda1 = PV of 10G
- launch the installer (in my case, text-based from USB thumb drive
  using hd-media)
- in the partman part, go "manual"
- in the list of drives, "click" on the disk in order to "create a new
  empty partition table",
- create now a partition of 20G as "physical volume for LVM",
- "configure LVM" (when ask to write changes, say "yes"),
- "Create volume group"

The size reported is the one of the previous partition.

I tag this bug as minor but there may be big problems if the old size
is greater than the new. Will the LVM write after the new partition
in that case ?

May be related to #539557.

thank you for submitting bug reports concering debian-installer, much 

I read through all the bugs mentioned here (and I'm sure they were read by 
several people at the time they were submitted) and am closing them now as/if
- they (finally) indicated success and/or
- I know from first hand experience that the functionality is working in 
Wheezy and/or
- they only contained very little information and/or
- they contained user errors and/or
- they have been from a development phase where things were not stable and/or
- they are very old and/or
- they are wishlist but rather special + exotic and not have been acted on for 
years. (See http://blog.liw.fi/posts/wishlist-bugs/ why it's often useful to 
close wishlist bugs.)

If I've closed a bug incorrectly please do reply (it's easy to reopen and I'll 
do if requested) or just file a new one - and that's often better, as the bug 
log will be clearer and shorter and not contain cruft.
