Thanks for your prompt reply.

My Work machine is using Redhat 5.1 with kernel 2.0.34.

I have not applied the patches to either machine. I will try this on
my home machine ASAP. It didn't look important, as I didn't get the
invalid protocol message.

My test LV is as reported by lvdisplay. There are more than 1 PVs AND
more than 1 disk:

--- Logical volume ---
LV Name               /dev/vg1/lv2
VG Name               vg1
LV Write Access       read/write
LV Status             available
LV #                  2
# open                0
LV Size               1.46 GB
Current LE            375
Allocated LE          375
Allocation            next free
Read ahead sectors    120
Block device          58:0

   --- Distribution of logical volume on 4 physical volumes  ---
   PV Name                  PE on PV     reads      writes
   /dev/sdb9                125          0          0        
   /dev/sdc9                66           0          0        
   /dev/sdb10               172          0          0        
   /dev/sdc10               12           0          0

I think the memory timing is OK, it's not been a problem before, and
as I mentioned it seems to be OK except under LVM.

As far as interrupts are concerned, there is always that possibility!
But again, it's OK except under LVM, and I have been careful to make
sure it is stable without the Volume Manager.

I used to want to stripe the data under one controller to try to get
some extra performance, but I would rather have the flexibility of
resizeable partitions, so I might try repartitioning my hard disk, to
enable me to use larger partitions, if that would make it more

What do you think about this?

Many thanks, once again.
