Re: [linux-lvm] PBs with LVM over software RAID ( and XFS ? ext2 reiserfs?)



it's me again and out there is no one
so
well linux-2.4.10-pre2-xfs LVM-1.0.1rc2 works with XFS and JFS on the LV
ext2 and reiserfs segfaults as befor
i've compiled the other kernel's with JFS 1.0.4 but i don't see the
point to test them
i'm shure that JFS will work on the LV and the story with ext2 and
reiserfs will be the same
but i'll probably try the ReiserFS patches  for 2.4.9 ( after
www.namesys.com they already sent them to Linus )

i'm using e2fsprogs-1.2.4 and reiserfsprogs-3.x.0j
