RE: [linux-lvm] LVM



Svetljo:

	Lvmcreate_initrd -nomod I understand, what is the signifigance of "[ your kernel ]"? do I put the path to the kernel there? Can you give an example of what command like arguments I would type? My kernel version is 2.4.8-12mdk.

there is no trouble if you compile in FS and LVM and so on
but you need lvmcreate_initrd vor creating the ramdisk which contain the
binaries needed to activate the VG's
you can use lvmcreate_initrd --nomod [ your kernel ] to create the
initrd without modules
