Re: [linux-lvm] Just installed LVM on deb - got module errors - retry



Klaus,

we have mostly updated -ac series in order to make it into vanilla to avoid
recompiling the kernel. For now if you want to use an actual LVM version,
you need to follow the instructions in the INSTALL and PATCHES/README files
in order to patch and compile/install a new kernel, sorry.

Regards,
Heinz    -- The LVM Guy --
