Re: [linux-lvm] LVM and sw RAID1

Can you send your fixes to the list?  At least then everyone else doesn't
need to fix the same bugs.  It would be even better if Heinz made a new
bugfix release, but I watch the list for fixes anyways...

No journalling filesystem will work properly with RAID 5 - not reiserfs
and not ext3.  You need to stick with a non-journalling filesystem, or
use RAID1.  It may be that this is supposed to be fixed in 2.4, but I'm
not 100% sure...
