Re: [linux-lvm] Segmentation fault in vgscan



Heinz,

I'm pretty sure I've tested with 1.0.7. Look at the lines

>> lblsapq00:~ # gdb ./LVM/1.0.7/tools/vgscan
  ...
>> (gdb) run
>> Starting program: /root/./LVM/1.0.7/tools/vgscan

The other problem is that this is at a customer site on
production machines. I can test the next time I'm there
and got machine time to do some testing. This will happen
as soon as the SAN support guys come back to me to solve
the undelying problem (disks visible twice).
