Hello everybody,

I am using gentoo and I use LVM snapshots to make backups of my system.
Unfortunately, I always have a problem to remove these. LVM always
complains that it can't remove an open logical volume. However, the
snapshot is unmounted when I try to remove it. It seems it's only
possible to remove the snapshot if the corresponding volume is
deactivated. So, I am forced to boot on a live cd to remove the snapshot
of my root partition. Is this really normal ?

No, it is not normal. Obviously something on your system has the snapshot open. Perhaps it is being auto mounted?
