Re: [linux-lvm] lvcreate segfault in vg_setup_pointers_for_snapshots



This is exactly what I was seeing.  I replaced the lv_create call with
an lv_create_remove call and it worked.

Note that not only lv_name is corrupt, but so are the vg and lv.

I was told that this was due to a buggy compiler, though I have not had
time to find and use a good compiler yet.  I guess it is only a metter
of time until something else crashes, since I comiled my kernel, modules
and LVM with the compiler :)  I'll let you know when I find a comilper
that works.  Andreas, what compiler version are you using?
