9 Try it out and see what happens. Create an lv using all available space
10 on all the pvs and if it's created, then things must be working right
11 and lvm doesn't need the 8e partiton type.
13 If not, then simply use fdisk to change the partition type and try it
14 again. Then you will have proven practical usage (which means
15 something) as opposed to opinions (which mean very little)
