[linux-lvm] Can't create the Logical Volume in my system

Dear sir,
     I am trying the current version of LVM on my machine. I download the
lvm-1.0.1-rc4.tar.gz file from the FTP site. But I can't create any Logical
Volume on my machine. So I need your help. Thanks.

     My H/W information is:
          VIA Socket7 motherboard with VT82C686A, VT8501 chip
          CPU Cyrix MII-333
          RAM 192MB
          HDD x 3 =      hda 40GB (hda1=2G, hda5=rest size, hda6=64 swap)
                    hdc 20GB (hdc1=2G, hdc2=2G, hdc3=2G, hdc5=128 swap, hdc6=5G,
hdc7=5G, hdc8=rest size)
                    hdd 40GB (hdd1=200MB, hdd5=rest size, hdd6=32 swap)
          FileSystem XFS V1.0.1 on HDA, EXT2 on HDC and HDD.
     My OS and Software..:
          Red Hat Linux 7.1 with Kernel 2.4.10 (with XFS patches)
     My testing procedure:
          1. ./configure --with-kernel_dir=/usr/src/linux-2.4
          2. cd PATCHES, make
          3. cd /usr/src/linux-2.4
          3. patch -p1 < lvm-1.0.1=rc4-2.4.10-xfs.patch
          4. Configure the Kernel with LVM as Module (and RAID + linear, because
I don't want to test the Software RAID now) There ever happen the Makefile
patched during this procedure. (drivers/md/Makefile has already got "lvm-fs.o"
line before the patch)
          5. make bzImage, make modules, make modules_install, change lilo...
          6. make, make install (LVM tool and library)
          7. reboot
          8. Change the partition ID by FDISK (83 Linux Native-> 8e Linux LVM)
on /dev/hdc3, /dev/hdc8, /dev/hdd1
          9. pvcreate  /dev/hdc3, pvcreate /dev/hdc8  -->  OK
          10. vgcreate MyVG01 /dev/hdc3, vgcreate MyVG02 /dev/hdc8  -->  OK
                 The result of "vgdisplay" is:  (See attached file: VolumeGroup)
          11. vgchange -ay MyVG01, vgchange -ay MyVG02  -->  OK
          12.  lvcreate -L 2G -n HDD01 MyVG01  -->  core dump
          13.  lvcreate -L 2G -n HDD02 MyVG02  -->  core dump
          14. What ever I do (changing the LV size or deactive/active the VG,
format the partition....), it always display core dump.
          15. The result of "pvdisplay" are: (See attached file:
PhysicalVolume02)(See attached file: PhysicalVolume01)
     I don't know what's wrong with my LVM. Did I make any mistake during the
kernel or tool build procedure? Or I can't use XFS or EXT2 filesystem. I ever
combine 2 partitions into one VolumeGroup, it still got "core dump". I plan to
use LVM in a couple of weeks in all of my machine. So this procedure is my first
try. Please tell me how to fix it (or what's wrong)?
     By the way, the "lvcreate -d ...." will dump a lots of messages but I can't
pipeline into a text file. The last few line are like below:
     <7777777> lvm_get_Device_type called
     <7777777> lvm_get_Device_Type leaving with 0
     <666666> lvm_check_partition_dev -- LEAVING with ret: TRUE
     <55555> lvm_check_dev -- LEAVING with ret: 1
     <55555> pv_check_new -- CALLED
     <55555> pv_check_new -- LEAVING with ret: 0
     <4444> pv_check_consistency -- LEAVING with ret: 0
     <333> lv_check_on_pv -- LEAVING with ret: 1
     <22> pv_reserve_pe -- EAVING with ret: 0
     <1> lv_setup_for_create -- pv_reserve_pe returned: 0 pe_last: 13  pe:0
     <1> lv_setup_for_create -- pe: 0
     <1> lv_setup_for_create 00 LEAVING with ret: 0
     <1> lvm_dont_interrupt -- CALLED
     <1> lvm_dont_interrupt -- LEAVING
     Segmentation fault (core dumped)
     I wish they are helpful. (Also, I haven't mount any filesystem that they
are not on hda. So HDC and HDD are definitely un-mounted.)
