Re: [linux-lvm] [CVS LVM Mon Jan 29 16:18:57 EST 2001] Device /dev/hdc1 doesn'texist



Hi David,

did you check that your /dev entries are setup correctly?
The error returned by pv_get_size() makes me believe that there could be
something wrong.

In special they should look like:

brw-rw----   1 root     disk      22,   0 Mar 11  2000 /dev/hdc
brw-rw----   1 root     disk      22,   1 Mar 11  2000 /dev/hdc1
brw-rw----   1 root     disk      22,  10 Mar 11  2000 /dev/hdc10
brw-rw----   1 root     disk      22,  11 Mar 11  2000 /dev/hdc11
brw-rw----   1 root     disk      22,  12 Mar 11  2000 /dev/hdc12
brw-rw----   1 root     disk      22,  13 Mar 11  2000 /dev/hdc13
brw-rw----   1 root     disk      22,  14 Mar 11  2000 /dev/hdc14
brw-rw----   1 root     disk      22,  15 Mar 11  2000 /dev/hdc15
brw-rw----   1 root     disk      22,   2 Mar 11  2000 /dev/hdc2
brw-rw----   1 root     disk      22,   3 Mar 11  2000 /dev/hdc3
brw-rw----   1 root     disk      22,   4 Mar 11  2000 /dev/hdc4
brw-rw----   1 root     disk      22,   5 Mar 11  2000 /dev/hdc5
brw-rw----   1 root     disk      22,   6 Mar 11  2000 /dev/hdc6
brw-rw----   1 root     disk      22,   7 Mar 11  2000 /dev/hdc7
brw-rw----   1 root     disk      22,   8 Mar 11  2000 /dev/hdc8
brw-rw----   1 root     disk      22,   9 Mar 11  2000 /dev/hdc9

for /dev/hdc.
