RE: [linux-lvm] LVM



Svetljo:

	So for LVM, you do need to use the lvmcreate_initrd program or not? I am still not clear on that.

	If I need to make an lvmcreate_initrd, does not that mean it cannot be in the kernel?

it's better to have them compiled in ,

it's not needed for software RAID, IBM's EVMS (still alpha status) and
is on the to-do list of lvm
( i have read this in the previous messages)
but as of today you need initrd for the binaries for activating the VG's
and LV's
