Re: [linux-lvm] bcache and dm targets (specifically lvm)



Ahh!

I didn't know LVM had a device type lookup table. You can see if you
look further that it also reads new types from the lvm.conf file.
Adding this line to lvm.conf fixes the problem:

types = [ "bcache", 16 ]

I would imagine if merged it would be added to the internal compiled in table.

Thanks for the pointer.
Joseph.
