Re: [linux-lvm] Dumb (well known I hope) symbol problem

this looks like a missing LVM kernel patch.

Did you follow the instructions contained in the INSTALL
and PATCHES/README files in order to update the LVM kernel code?

We are working on updating vanilla to the recent LVM code, but up to 2.4.4
you still need to apply a patch which comes with the LVM distribution.
