[linux-lvm] Various strangeness (beta3,2.4.0/devfs)


I'm getting a few strange things happening which may
be related to devfs. I'm running 2.4.0 with
0.9.1beta3, and reiserfs 3.6.26. My root filesystem is
on LVM so I'm using an initial ramdisk.

1. When my initrd does a vgscan it works OK with no

2. When it does vgchange, it works but i get this
devfs: devfs_register(): device already registered:
(not important, i know, but I like a tidy bootup :) )

3. When the system has booted, doing any vgscans
produces this output:

[root fuse /root]# vgscan
vgscan -- reading all physical volumes (this may take
a while...)
vgscan -- found active volume group "vg00"
vgscan -- problem creating volume group directory
vgscan -- ERROR "vg_create_dir_and_group(): mkdir"
creating volume group directory and special files
vgscan -- ERROR "vg_create_dir_and_group(): mkdir"
creating "/etc/lvmtab" and "/etc/lvmtab.d"

4. If I "lvremove" an LV, the block special device is
not removed:
[root fuse /root]# lvremove /dev/vg00/new_lvol3 
lvremove -- do you really want to remove
"/dev/vg00/new_lvol3"? [y/n]: y
lvremove -- doing automatic backup of volume group
lvremove -- logical volume "/dev/vg00/new_lvol3"
successfully removed

[root fuse /root]# lvcreate -nnew_lvol3 -l24 vg00
lvcreate -- block special /dev/vg00/new_lvol3 already

[root fuse /root]# ls -l /dev/vg00/new_lvol3 
brw-rw----    1 root     root      58,  21 Jan 26
11:43 /dev/vg00/new_lvol3

That's about all I've found so far. Please let me know
if you require any debugging output!
