Re: [linux-lvm] devfs...



OK I've been looking around - and it seems that the latest devfs doesn't
have /dev/sd/*  - instead we have lots of weird things, like
/dev/discs/disc0/* /dev/discs/disc1/* etc ... I've fixed my vgscan but
adding

   static char *devdir[] = {
      "/dev/ida",
      "/dev/ide/hd",
      "/dev/loop",
      "/dev/md",
      "/dev/rd",
      "/dev/sd",
+     "/dev/discs/disc0",
+     "/dev/discs/disc1",
+     "/dev/discs/disc2",
+     "/dev/discs/disc3",
+     "/dev/discs/disc4",
      "/dev",
      NULL

to lvm_dir_cache.c and similar to pv_check_name.c.

It works for me but hopefully devfs will settle down and not keep changing
soon...

Thanks,

james
