Hi Joel, thanks fer reply.

you missed the point. maybe i was not clear enough.
the point is HOW TO MAKE that Type 8e Partition with parted ?? since all docs i read about parted told me that parted is not supporting type 8e partitions. but any simple fdisk can create them (but not on gpt it seems).

so how to make a type 8e partition on my GPT Disk-Drive using parted ???

and if not possible to creat a Type 8e (lvm) partition with parted.. WHAT ELSE partition type should i create so i can put a lvm volume on ?

PS: i know that lvm does not require "partitions" to put a PV on it.. but I WANT IT to have a partition on it so simple (old) partitioning programms can recognize there is something on that disk. a pure LVM PV without any partition "frame" would not be recignized by other apps but lvm .

Understandable ? sorry. but im no native english speaker.. my english is poor.

In your case I would create the partition, and then `lvm pvcreate
/dev/DEV` on the new created partition.  in that way you have a physical
volume and you can put lvm stuff on top of it.
I also think you can set the "lvm" flag in the partition metadata.  I'm
pretty sure that is what you are looking for.  In any case looking for
filesystem metadata in the partition table is not always a good thing to
do.  Fedora installer actually searches the partition for any filesystem
