In lvm some fs are marked Linux LVM but what is extended? that slice of the disk marked as extended appears to be used but does not appear in pvscan - the only thing showing in pvscan is the lvm partition. just dont understand what the extended space is for. I thought it could be added to a vg but seems to be used up .
