Re: [dm-devel] how to load dm-multisnapshot [with LVM patch]



I'll retest and will share my findings later today (the 2.02.64 patches
on my website were refreshed from 2.02.63+ that was very close to the
final 2.02.64); but I didn't retest them at that time).

But I handed these 2.02.64 patches off to Mikulas and I have to believe
he'd have seen this issue when testing his further development.  To my
knowledge he hasn't.

Anyway, we'll see, but I've seen similar errors when I've created a
shared cow LV using a sandbox lvm2 build (not installed to the system).
And then the system's lvm2 didn't have multisnapshot support.  In that
situation you'll see the same type of unknown segment errors when
running the system's lvm2 commands.
