Arch 0.7 Wombat full iso error with logical volumes

I have a 160 GB ide-hd as primary master in my system.

Whenever i create logical partitions through the installer and try to give them a filesystem i get errors.
the installer reports unable to mount /mnt/usr or not enough space to mount.

Checking the partition table with Partition magic 8 dos tells that the extended partition starts above cil. 1024 and should be of type extendedX.
I let PM8 repair the table and go back to the archlinux install that now works fine.

it looks to me like the error is in cfdisk 2.12a.


Multi-init booting with apg Openrc and systemd coexisting
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

Re: Arch 0.7 Wombat full iso error with logical volumes

did cfdisk give you any messages about having to reboot after your changes? Sometimes when you modify the partition table a reboot is necessary before you can do anything to it.

Re: Arch 0.7 Wombat full iso error with logical volumes

Nope, cfdisk gave no errors or reboot instructions.

1 time i tested this, used the install cd to create 1 primary and 1 logical volume , rebooted and tried /arch/setup without success.

rebooted with PM8 rescue cd, repair things, rebooted again with arch cd and install went on without problems.

It looks like cfdisk/large HD's / logical volumes don't work well together.

I have switched to using LVM since then, so i don't need physical logical volumes anymore.
