Package: lvm-common
Version: 1.5.20
Severity: normal
File: /sbin/lvmiopversion


I'm trying to move a logical volume within in single physical volume but pvmove claims there are no available extends:

root at book:~# pvmove -A y -i 10 -v /dev/sda4:8768-8831 /dev/sda4:0-63
    Finding volume group "c"
  No extents available for allocation

I know for sure that extends 0-63 are free because I lvremoved a
volume there just minutes ago.
