RE: [linux-lvm] Setup for RAID1 with LVM



Sorry for the late answer, I was off line for some time. Sorry if you get
this one twice Ferenc.
I ran into a very similar issue some time ago using stock 1.0.1rc4 (not
CVS).
I tried zeroing the first block of the MD device... it didn't help.
This was discussed and solved in the "[linux-lvm] pvcreate fails on a
software RAID metadisk" thread.
The patch that was generated at that time and which made it into CVS was:
--- tools/lib/lvm_check_partitioned_dev.c.bluca	Thu Aug 23 07:51:53 2001
+++ tools/lib/lvm_check_partitioned_dev.c	Fri Oct  5 21:18:51 2001
