[linux-lvm] Error with 2.5.50-dm-2; vanilla OK



Weird, the patch that is causing you the problem will be:

http://people.sistina.com/~thornber/patches/2.5-stable/2.5.50/2.5.50-dm-2/00005.patch <http://people.sistina.com/%7Ethornber/patches/2.5-stable/2.5.50/2.5.50-dm-2/00005.patch>

Though it still looks sane to me.  Can you send me the lvm2 log from
this vgchange along with the size in sectors of hdb7 please ?

Sure - here is more information about my system - the PVs as below Disk /dev/hdb: 255 heads, 63 sectors, 7297 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 bytes

Output of lvm vgchange -ay --verbose (BTW I just noticed an ioctl complaint - don't know what it means)

There ought to be 4 LVs and minors; when the system is right I get
