Re: LVM not fit for default

Oh, and Joachim,

I don't think it was a Hardware issue, I just think I got some sort of data corruption and it messed up the partition table, and since LVM handles the management of Logical Volumes on Real Partitions, there were no partitions that I could e2fsck.....

Come on, "FC3" got released *three*years* ago, so it's not appropriate to make an argument out of this for discussing today's maturity of "LVM". Btw, I have been using "LVM" exclusively for 3 years now [exact, since I first installed "FC3"], and I have never ever had any trouble with it at all. Maybe you encountered a hardware problem?
