The partition type codes are specific to the MSDOS MBR partition table. They are meaningless in other partitioning schemes.
so its impossible to create such a Type 8e "lvm" Partition on a GPT labeled drive?
u mean i could create/use ANY type of partition to use as a "lvm container" ? like ext3 or swap ?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 ?It doesn't actually matter; the lvm2 tools have never checked the partition code used (it's more-or-less "documentation" nowadays).
Reasonable enough but just create a standard partition on the GPT
labeled drive and use that.
please define "standard partition"
and what if i create an ext3 partition as a container for an lvm-PV - am i required to set that lvm flag thingy within the partition table ? or whatfor is that flag then ?
thanks fer help!
