Re: [linux-lvm] Successful Upgrade to 1.0 with RH 7.1



Gerry,

thanks a lot for your kind feedback.

FYI:
in order to make the upgrade to > 0.9.1 Beta 8 even smoother, my team came
up with a slicker solution avoiding the metadata upgrade process
completely, which caused sleepless nights ;-) for some users and Linux
distributors. Sorry folks!

Already announced and available at www.sistina.com as LVM 1.0.1-rc1.

FYI: users, who already have successfully updated to 1.0 *don't* need it
     but users who didn't can install 1.0.1-rc1 *and* run it with their given
     VGs without a seperate upgrade process (kudos to my team and Joe Thornber
     in particular :-)

Regards,
Heinz    -- The LVM Guy --
