Slackware 12.1 LVM pvcreate error /dev/hdc: open failed :Read-only


Hi everyone!

I am trying to install slackware 12.1 in VMware Server using LVM, to test it out before installing on my computer.

I am following this guide:
ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackwar...README_LVM.TXT

when I try to run the command:
Quote:
pvcreate /dev/sda1
I get:
Quote:
/dev/hdc: open failed: Read-only file system Canīt initialize physical volume "/dev/sda1" of volume group "myvg" without -f
I dont understand why its trying to open my cdrom unless it needs to read the pvcreate command off there??

Any ideas??

Hi everyone,

I have tried the install on my desktop direct to the hard drive without VM and it seems to work fine. I would still be interested as to whats happening in the VM though!
