RE: [linux-lvm] [Patch] lvchange better error reporting



Quick question for Hubert "or" the general dist. list..

I've been watching the thread for about a week+ now, and am determined to go
with LVM, especially being so HPcentric and loving LVM for that platform.

With that in mind, I have a decision to make, which is(I think) switch to a
kernel other than Redhat's default 6.0/6.1 kernel(2.2.5).

What rev kernel would be best considering LVM and what is the best way to
get there(pointing me to a FAQ/www be more than appropriate.

Also, Heinz - What are you using to develop your GUI frontend?(just curious)

Thanks all,

Christopher.

Heinz, people,

It annoyed me that lvchange sometimes reported that volume group "(null)"
was invalid. This patch fixes this behaviour. Please apply.
