Description

LSAC(v2)
The system-config-lvm package contains a utility for configuring logical volumes (LVs) using a graphical user interface. This update fixes the following bugs: * The system-config-lvm utility did not start correctly when there were too many existing LVs and returned a traceback. This was due to a bug in the best_fit function, which tried to fit all existing LVs into the display area. This update modifies the underlying source code to make the system-config-lvm utility fully functional even when there are more then 350 LVs existing on the system. (BZ#834231) * Initializing a disk via the system-config-lvm utility with an EFI GPT partition table did not work correctly because the fdisk utility, which is used by system-config-lvm to manipulate disk partition tables, does not support EFI GPT partition tables. With this update, attempting to initialize a disk using an EFI GPT partition table returns an informative error message. Support for EFI GPT partition tables was not added. (BZ#700253) All users of system-config-lvm are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes these bugs.
