Re: [linux-lvm] no volume groups found



Pierre,

It's not proper to yell at people like that. The guy is asking an honest
question and you yelling at him will not get him any closer to a solution.

I use debian unstable, but I have upgraded to lvm 1.0.

My suggestion is to use lvm 1.0-rc1. Any other valid suggestions?

Glenn
