    Excellent Program and How-To

    Quick Note to people using XFCE (such as my mythbox):

    Make sure you install package python-gnome2 or you will get a gnome error. Yes I know it is a given for most people but I was stumped for five mins until I actually read the error message word for word.

    Just a quick tip for those not using gnome!

    sudo apt-get install python-gnome2

    Re: HOWTO : LVM gui (Not EVMS)

    Hi CrazyMonkey...

    I am in solid agreement with all the accolades - this post has been a real help to me.... I have been experimenting with Linux/Ubuntu and have reinstalled and rejigged my system several times along the way. Each time I have followed your instructions, and got the result I was after...... but this time around I seem to have generated an error, and not sure what I have done wrong. Wondered if you could take a look? The system starts to load and then bombs out.

    Many thanks
    Martin

    ps - take the compliments, ignore the help request... i read backwards and found the answer on your page 6. Cheers!!

    Re: HOWTO : LVM gui (Not EVMS)

    this is a script to install command for system-config-lvm (with ALL dependencies in [k]ubuntu) from latest version of fedora 9:

    url="http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/9/Everything/i386/os/Packages/system-config-lvm-1.1.4-1.0.fc9.noarch.rpm"
    file="system-config-lvm.rpm"
    wget url -O /tmp/$file && sudo alien -i /tmp/$file && sudo ln -s /usr/bin/python2.5 /usr/bin/python2 && sudo apt-get install python-gnome2 lvm2

    ps: please update first page

    Re: HOWTO : LVM gui (Not EVMS)

    If you don't want to deal with alien and Fedora packages, you can just use the package from Intrepid. Thankfully, it requires no new dependencies over what's already in Hardy.

    http://packages.ubuntu.com/intrepid/...g-lvm/download

    The whole thing was downloaded and installed in under a minute, and just feels a lot cleaner than the other method.

    a simple 'apt-get install dmraid' will fix it.
    Thanks! Was searching through and only found more like me with the same problem. Solved!

    Or use the debian package. It worked like a charm for me (on Hardy with Kde)

    Re: HOWTO : LVM gui (Not EVMS)

    mythbuntu 8.10, fresh install with all updates.

    I think the LVM service is not running.

    The python symlink and the dmraid install didn't change anything (I don't know if they have any effect on the lvm service or not)
    I did a reboot and the gui is now up.
