Re: [linux-lvm] [Bug#189650: lvcreate segfaults (possibly after renames)]



Looks like the kernel doesn't have recent patches and that the
devfs entry isn't updated properly on lvrename.
Marcelo has those patches and they hopefully show up in 2.4.21 so that there's
no need to patch the kernel any longer.

Make sure that the kernel gets patched following README/INSTALL instructions
contained in the 1.0.7 source tarball.
