[linux-lvm] Re: with 2.4.1, should I use beta2 or beta3 lvm-tools?



Hello!

When I try to apply the patch that LVM 0.9.1beta3 creates with: 

./configure --with-kernel_dir=/usr/src/linux-2.4.1 creates, on my
/usr/src/linux-2.4.1 directory like this:

hostname:/usr/src/linux-2.4.1# cat
/usr/src/LVM/0.9.1_beta3/PATCHES/lvm-0.9.1_beta3-2.4.1.patch | patch -p1
patching file include/linux/lvm.h
patching file drivers/md/lvm.c
patching file drivers/md/lvm-snap.c
patching file drivers/md/Config.in
Reversed (or previously applied) patch detected!  Assume -R? [n] 
Apply anyway? [n] n

I get the above error, should it apply cleanly or can I just ignore this and
answer y to apply anyway?

Thank you a lot in advance,

Håkan Jettingstad

Please use the latest code if you can.  The LVM tar balls will build a
patch for your kernel.  If you don't want to patch your kernel
yourself then use the latest tools with 2.4.1, but you should probably
refrain from using snapshots.  We hope to make another release at the
beginning of next week (probably beta4).
