    Re: HOWTO : LVM gui (Not EVMS)

    I'm having some trouble getting this to work. I'm a noob at this and hopefully someone is still paying attention to this post.

    I followed the instructions from my default terminal promopt and all seemed to go OK. The problem starts when I try to launch the LVM manager. I have a menu item in Application > Other > Logical Volume Management. When I click on it, I get this error message:



    As the message indicates, apparently I don't have the right file in the right directory. How do I make sure it gets installed in the right directory? Where did I go wrong?

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: HOWTO : LVM gui (Not EVMS)

    The shortcut in the Others menu wont work because it does not use the gksu prefix to execute as root. You can change this in the menu editor (just add gksu before the command). gksu is the gnome equivalent of sudo. You can also try to run it from the terminal with the following command : sudo system-config-lvm

    Let me know if it wont work from the terminal either.

    Re: HOWTO : LVM gui (Not EVMS)

    crazymonkey, you're pure genius! I was able to run in gnome with "gksu system-config-lvm" and the terminal with "sudo system-config-lvm". Then I found the Alacarte Menu Editor and modified the command that gnome uses to launch the program so I can now launch it from the Other menu.

    I'm so happy to have this running. I've always thought that easy LVM configuration was the biggest downfall of Ubuntu - now I have it.

    Thanks again.

    Install python-gnome2. That seemed to do the trick.

    Re: HOWTO : LVM gui (Not EVMS)

    I was successful installing Ubuntu Edgy (with Beryl !!!!) on a LVM spanning two physical disks. This has been very time consuming as it required multiple attempts for different reasons. Anyway because my setup is not exactly very secure, I installed the LVM gui and when I attempted to take a snapshot to save on a separate drive, I get this error message:

    The dm-snapshot module is either not loaded in your kernel, or your kernel does not support the dm-snapshot target. If it is supported, try running "modprobe dm-snapshot". Otherwise, creation of snapshots is unavailable.

    I tried to find help on the forum relative to that and even modprobe loaded the dm-snapshot module, but keep getting the same message. My kernel is 2.6.17-10-generic (i686).

    Anybody has any idea if this is even possible to do. I would hate to have to go through the same ordeal...

    Thank you

    Re: HOWTO : LVM gui (Not EVMS)

    Can you create LVM snapshots from the command line using lvcreate? It might just be a GUI bug.

    I will try it (although I am not experienced at all with LVM).
