gnome-disk-utility is able to alter the lvm (if the system is installed with lvm) while the system is in use

Asked by Raul on 2020-07-21

gnome-disk-utility 3.36.1
UDisks 2.8.4 (built against 2.8.4)
Kubuntu 20.04

My attention was short and I was messing up with the lvm of my system instead the lvm of my external HDD (it's encrypted with LUVKS). After reboot, I couldn't boot, because vgkubuntu-root was deleted. Gnome-disk-utility showed me an error that the system was in use, but apparently it caused a damaged. The system only booted to initframs, and even the commands to scan the lvm volumes wouldn't show any output.

What I was trying to do: deleting the partition of my HDD and create the LUVKS, but the vgkubuntu was selected in the gnome-disk-utility side panel instead of my disk.
