Description:

Kvpm is a KDE (version 4) GUI for the Linux Volume Manager project and
libparted. It needs KDE 4 libraries and headers installed. It uses the
standard lvm tools and programs to work with logical volumes. It also
can format volumes and mount them. It uses libparted to create or delete partitions. LVM tools MUST be installed for this program to function. That limitation may be removed soon however.

This program is currently being developed on lvm version:

#lvs --version
LVM version: 2.02.39 (2008-06-27)
Library version: 1.02.27 (2008-06-25)
Driver version: 4.13.0



Because kvpm relies on the exact format of the lvm program
output it probably won't work correctly with earlier versions.

The following development headers need to be
installed for compilation:

libparted version 1.8
libblkid
kdelibs version 4



To compile the source just "cd" into the source directory then run
"cmake -i" and answer the questions. Next run "make" and if all goes
well you will have a working executable.

version 0.5.4
The volume group creation dialog can be called from
the "volume group" menu now and create new groups

path for the needed programs such as "vgs" can be
configured.

version 0.5.2

New and blingy "create partition" graphic
like "gparted" has to show the size of a partition
about to be created along with the free space around
it.

The panels get a more finished look and small
areas (under 1 MiB) of free space are not shown
anymore.

version 0.5.0
Can create a new partition table.
Better support for GPT disk labels and
a visual make over of the device tab.
Needs cmake version 2.6 or better.
Adds and removes partitions from partition table.
