RE: [linux-lvm] Can't pvcreate second partition...



I wasn't trying to be rude, btw.  I had a friend tell me he had to bounce
his machine after a fdisk, but I have never had it happen myself.  This was
with a generic 2.2.x kernel, btw.

If you need/want details, I can call him and ask.

Thanx,
Mike Diehl,
Network Monitoring Tool Devl.
