Re: [linux-lvm] Configuring boot partition with LVM

Hi,

I don't think you fully appreciate the request you're making here.
Commercial Unices such as HP-UX and Solaris can not boot from striped
volumes for about the same reasons why it would be difficult to have
LILO read from a striped volume: the implications are just too
horrendous to comtemplate.

Typically I don't care that my boot partition/lv can not be striped. The
I/O rates into that volume are just not high enough to need striping.
Why not put our efforts to something else which is more important right
now.?
