[linux-lvm] [lvm 0.8 final] lvmcreate_initrd fails for me



I have been working on a problem with 0.8final - lvmcreate_initrd for
the past week or so - off and on.  The problem is that the step where
the files are copied to the ram disk fails for lack of space even though
the ram disk has about 7 meg free.

If I duplicate the commands from the command line I can create an 8 meg
ram disk and fill the full 8 meg.

My system is running Mandrake 7.2 and the kernel is the source
distributed by Mandrake kernel-2.2.17-21mdk patched with
lvm-0.8final-2.2.16TL.patch.

As far as I can tell, everything else is working correctly. I can extend
my reiserfs filesystems which are on LVs while they are on-line and in
use with no identified problems.  I just can't build a new initrd for a
new kernel compile.

I have attached a copy of the lvmcreate_initrd output and that of a df
command also.

I would appreciate any ideas on how to resolve this.
