    LVM - vgcreate problems


    Debian - 2.4.27-3-386
    I'm trying to create a volume group using /dev/sdb.

    pvcreate /dev/sdb
    pvcreate -- physical volume "/dev/sdb" successfully created

    vgcreate vg001 /dev/sdb
    vgcreate -- no valid physical volumes in command line

    I've tried creating a primary partition or extended partition /dev/sdb1.
    I've tried setting the partition type in fdisk to 8e (Linux LVM).
    Rebooting after each variation.

    Figured out my own problem.
    I was using lvm10.
    I removed it.
    Then installed lvm2.
    Now it's working.
