[yast-devel] problem installing onto LVM striped disks
Hi,

I'm trying to do an autoyast install onto LVM striped volumes. I couldn't find
an example, but it seems like something similar to the following should work
(it works in the unstriped variation).

Specifically, in the partition planning step, I'm getting an error dialog that
says "A logical volume with the requested size could not be created. Try
reducing the stripe count of the volume."

It doesn't seem like it can actually be running out of space, as the disks are
a lot larger than the sizes specified. I've included the end of the y2log
below.

Is there some way to tweak this to make it work?

Thanks,
Mike
