Today I added into an existing LVM, a new 1TB HDD.
This was about 5 HOURS ago!
The procedure I used was
- Yast > Partitioning > Select new disk > Create EXT3 partition > Accept
- The disk was formatted.
- No mount point was specified as it was to be included in a LVM.
- Yast > LVM > added new partition into LVM > Accept
Received notification that changes were made
Now, if i recall, when I added a 750gb disk into the LVM, it did take some time (3 hours perhaps) as the machine is a low-spec box (800mhz p3, 384mb ram) but FIVE HOURS (and counting)? Is there any way I can check progress of this, or is it a case of sit back and wait?
