Re: [linux-lvm] Need help with LVM on RedHat 7.1



Thanks, but I usually don't use Beta on a production box and
also RedHat 7.1 comes with a rather old version of lvm, I think 0.8final.

But the compile errors I'm getting are two basics to have passed QA of
any distributor...I just recompiled again with only LVM enabled and not RAID
and MD
and was getting syntactical errors (compile errors) leaving to belive that
some .h
file is missing.

I will try the 'make mrproprer', maybe that'll fix it...
