Okay, calling LVM developers (or anyone else with more clue than me
:-). I've tried this myself :-

- linux 2.2.19
- reiserfs
- linux-2.2.18-rawio.patch
- lvm-1.0.1-rc4-2.2.19.patch

cc -D__KERNEL__ -I/mirrors/linux/linux-2.2.19/include -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -fno-strict-aliasing -pipe -fno-strength-reduce -m486 -malign-loops=2 -malign-jumps=2 -malign-functions=2 -DCPU=586 -DMODULE -DMODVERSIONS -include /mirrors/linux/linux-2.2.19/include/linux/modversions.h   -c -o lvm.o lvm.c
lvm.c: In function `lvm_do_lv_create':
lvm.c:2192: structure has no member named `de'
{standard input}: Assembler messages:
{standard input}:9: Warning: Ignoring changed section attributes for .modinfo
lvm.c: In function `lvm_do_lv_remove':
lvm.c:2277: structure has no member named `de'
make[3]: *** [lvm.o] Error 1

Note the change in hd_struct in include/linux/genhd.c between 2.2.19
and 2.4.xxx :-

# 2.2.19
struct hd_struct {
	long start_sect;
	long nr_sects;
	int type;		/* RAID or normal */

# 2.4.0-test12
struct hd_struct {
	long start_sect;
	long nr_sects;
	devfs_handle_t de;              /* primary (master) devfs entry  */

So de is being set to the devfs_handle_t returned by lvm_fs_create_lv
and this doesn't exist in 2.2.19. So what needs to be set in 2.2 ?

What has been changed between 0.9.1beta7 (or later) and 1.0.1rc4 ?

I'll send this now and have a look (in CVS as well) to see if I can
anything obvious but not being a kernel hacker I am unsure of what is

Thanks for any help,


Adrian Phillips

Your mouse has moved.
Windows NT must be restarted for the change to take effect.
Reboot now?  [OK]
