RE: [linux-lvm] What have I done!?



Well, because I don't remember what kernel version I was running or what
version of the LVM code I was running, I think me trying to compile
another kernel with the drivers is going to be very much in vein, so I'm
not going to even bother.

Just like the last message:  If anyone can tell me how go about blowing
away the various LVMs so I can try to re-do this thing, I'd appreciate
it!
