Can't install 64 studio 2.1 amd64. (lvm2 missing?)

I have installed 64 studio a couple of times in my machine without any problem. I installed 64 studio 2.0 amd64 and had it upgraded to 2.1 (and used the testing repos). I also installed 2.1 i386 from the DVD without any problem but now I formatted my entire hard drive and wanted to install 2.1 amd64 from the DVD in a logical volume inside a LVM group (the boot partition is of course not LVM). Now, the problem is the installation gives me a "fatal error" like about 70% of "installing the base system". Pressing crtl+alt+F4 reveals that the installation program is unable to find lvm2. Now after googleing for it I found this: So it WAS a bug, but it's supposed to be solved. Now I wanted to install 2.0 (because I know I was able to install that one in the past) and then upgrade to 2.1 via apt-get but I can't find the 2.0 installation DVD anywhere right now. So any idea?

Yes, Please provide lvm2 again...

I was disappointed to see lvm2 package missing errors in the (failed) install logs when trying first 2.1 and 3.0 b3 :( I'd googled lvm2 and 64 studio and seen a bug report stating the error was fixed, as mentioned above, so I'd assumed it would be there. Out of DVDs to burn, so guess I've got to dig out an old HDD to install to for now. Please fix this! giancario, thanks for mentioning 2.0=>3.0 install path for lvm2! I'll probably try that. hmm... looks like I could remaster using ubuntu customization kit. Never tried and first I'll try the distro and see if it is worth it.

Missing also for 3.0 beta3!

Same problem here, also for 3.0 beta3. Please, add lvm2 package to the install dvd of either 2.1 and 3.0! I, and others, will be grateful! It's quite annoying to install 2.0 and then upgrade to 3.0... Many thanks for your great work and help, G.

Missing lvm2 package

*Bump* I have experienced the very same problem. I am very invested in the use of lvm at this point and therefore would love to hear about a work-around for this. Is is possible to point the installer to another medium in which to find the package? (mirror site? ISO on hdd? etc...) Is it possible to add the debian lvm2 package to the original ISO before burning? (or something along those lines) I am willing to do some of the heavy lifting in order to get this (old) problem solved. IMHO lvm2 is ubiquitous and well accepted, not to mention officially supported within the installer, so it would seem to me that working this out may well benefit many. Thanks for your time and help, --socialSavant
