This from the debian devel list. Is this a known issue with LVM 0.8.1? I haven't heard mention of it before. ----- Forwarded message from Russell Coker <russell coker com au> ----- Delivered-To: lewis sistina com From: Russell Coker <russell coker com au> Reply-To: Russell Coker <russell coker com au> To: lewis sistina com, debian-devel lists debian org Subject: Re: lvm - I'll maintain it. - ITP lvm24 Date: Thu, 14 Dec 2000 14:05:03 +0100 X-Mailer: KMail [version 1.1.99] In-Reply-To: <20001213100137 A7828 sistina com> On 2000-12-13 17:01, lewis sistina com wrote: >> OK.

Have you seen that LVM 0.8.1 >and 0.9 are out now? Naming the packages after the protocol would be a good idea if the protocol numbers were known. With raidtools/raidtools2 there is little confusion. Naming a package lvm6 would not make things easier (even I am not sure yet which version is which!). I have packages of 0.8.1 and 0.9 under development. 0.9 seems to be for a newer version of lvm than is in the 2.4.0-test10 kernel. 0.8.1 doesn't work correctly, it does not automatically update /etc/lvmtab.d or create backups of the configuration which seems to be necessary. I am still playing with it. Also lvm doesn't seem to be designed to work with devfs, I use devfs exclusively so I'll try and get it going for devfs and for old style /dev. Any input from other Debian or offers to test this would be appreciated. -- http://www.coker.com.au/bonnie++/ Bonnie++ hard drive benchmark http://www.coker.com.au/postal/ Postal SMTP/POP benchmark http://www.coker.com.au/projects.html Projects I am working on http://www.coker.com.au/~russell/ My home page ----- End forwarded message ----- -- AJ Lewis Sistina Software Inc.
