Re: [linux-lvm] problem with activating volume group



Frode,

you didn't metion the LVM version you use and if you followed the kernel
patch instrcutions contained in the LVM source distro.

I guess you have a user/kernel code mismatch because 2.4.13 is still not
up to date. Recent Alan Cox kernel is and we hope that he'll update Linus
*soon*.

In order to get a clean LVM configuration, please get the LVM distro
from www.sistina.com and follow the instructions in the files INSTALL
and PATCHES/README.

Regards,
Heinz    -- The LVM Guy --
