Re: [linux-lvm] kernel oops.



I am unsure which driver redhat 6.1 is using for ips. I guess I'll just
have to 1.0  and see if I notice a difference. I'm glad somebody got this
working with the same configuration, it gives me hope. :)

It acts like it is a version before the they patched a kernel oops bug
that is noted in the ips.c file.

Thanks,
Rusty
