Hi folks,
I am back again. This is the output I get whe I try to run system-config-lvm, both form the command line or System Adm tray:

[root@CedarCourt ~]# system-config-lvm
Traceback (most recent call last):

raise BlockDeviceErr_cannotFit()
BlockDevice.BlockDeviceErr_cannotFit: <BlockDevice.BlockDeviceErr_cannotFit instance at 0xb7b7af2c>

Any help is welcome.

I forgot to give essential information. Here it is :

Motherboard ASUS A8N-E nvidia shipset

2 HD Samsung s-ata model SP2504C 250 GB
Serial ATA controller nvidia with RAID enabled (BIOS both disks)

I believe there is a bug in system-config-lvm not working if you have a software dmraid active.

I don't know if they released a fix yet or not check bugzilla against system-config-lvm with dmraid.

I found it, but it is still opened.
Thank you anyway.

In the meantime you should be able to open a terminal window and use the command line lvm commands, what were you going to do in system-config-lvm?

Yes I know it. I have modified my "partition" layout. It is not really a serious issue since you have the command line interface, but it would be nice to have a GUI working fine. I made some mistakes in the installation process and I think that is too late now (i should have created 2 raids volumes instead of only one). I am preparing the system to install other distros because I can't upgrade the kernel and the one I am running (2.6.15-1.2054) does not support non-GPL modules (http://clunixchit.blogspot.com/2006/03/fc5-ati-or-nvidia-drivers.html ). I have posted a bug about this but till now, no response as well (Bugzilla Bug 192165 Kernel does not boot after regular update).
