1.my mistake - it works. Do not know why i have written this...
2.try to set email: root at localhost during installation. Installator will
tell you this is not valid email. I had to set
root at localhost.localdomain, this was only way for me to make it working.
3.If you say all is working, than can you give me a hint how to set
hostname, not FQDN?

Look at a top of my message - "impressions" not bugs.

Yes, 5 minutes after sending my email i have noticed my mistake and
pointed this out in other post in this thread.

Fine by me. Just wanted to know if it is possible during installation.

If this was bugtrack, not ML, all this mail would look tooootally
different. Probably you would provide info how to start PVE in debugging
mode and what data do you need. But fine, here is what you might need:

Server: IBM x3250M2 (CPU without VT)
-Fresh install of proxmox.
-not clustered yet

Client: Ubuntu 9.04, Firefox 3.0.14

Steps to reproduce:
    (one storage is present, type:Directory, capacity=92.25GB. HDD
capacity is 135GB. Thus i have some space to make new storage)
  -Add LVM group
  -Fill Storage name: test_vg
  -Base Storage: Existing volume groups (no other option)
  -Volume Group Name: pve (135 GB) (no other option !!! )
  -enable: true
  -Shared: true
  -Content: Virtual Disks (no other option)
  -test_vg created but all space is used:
test_vg LVM Yes Yes Yes 131.47 135.47 97.05%

Now i want to disable/delete test_vg, i get :
"Error: command '/sbin/vgchange -aln pve' failed with exit code 5"

Thank you for pointing this out.

Looking forward to this. Keep in mind that you can always make an
account for user, and if you do not like the way he/she fills bug
reports, you can disable this account.

I'll keep testing
