[linux-lvm] troubled Guiness

Hi all,

I'm running RH 7.0 (Guiness) with the 2.2.16-22 kernel and gcc-2.96-85 and
have downloaded the Linus 2.4.9 stock kernel which I'm trying to make... I
built the patch and applied it with no apparent problem but when I try to
build the kernel I get the errors in the log below.

has anyone been here before?

1k thx - e

Well, all I did was follow the install instructions that came with the LVM
tarball to create the patch.  I didn't do anything special.  I wasn't able
to successfully install the newly created patch until I replaced the
kernel source with a fresh "clean" rpm.

Are you running the 2.4 kernel or are you using 2.2?  That makes a big
difference as you need to add the raw.io patch to the 2.2 kernel.  Also, I
don't believe that the shipped RH kernel config enables LVM as a default.

I still have the patch for 2.4.3-12.  However, I doubt it would work for a
7.0 install since I'm using 7.1.
