Re: [linux-lvm] LVM


I am using version 2.4.8-12mdk (mandrake) of the kernel. Mandrake 8.1 is going to be coming soon, and when it does come forth, I plan to upgrade. Having LVM running will make the upgrade much less painful!

I think you can have troubles with upgrading to MDK-8.1 if you use lvm-1.0.1 or anything after lvm-0.91beta8
as far i know they are still using the integrated in the kernel lvm-0.91beta2 and they don't wont to upgrade to lvm-1.0 or 1.0.1 so when you boot from the CD the kernel will not see the exiting logical volumes
but i think i have read somewhere that lvm-1.0.1 supports both the old and new phisical volumes

my advice befor copying anything to the LV ( i mean all the partitions you mean to upgrade : / , /usr ...
go through all the documentation and man pages and try to find out whether it's posible to create VG and LV's in the old format ( pre lvm-0.9.1beta8) but i think it's not possible

or wait until MDK-8.1 come and then install lvm-1.0.1

As we speak, I am downloading this file. But, can you tell me, are there any major caveats to using this version in the link below?

Very Respectfully,

Dear Sir:

I HAVE READ (and DID READ) PRIOR TO ASKING MY QUESTIONS, (when I noted I downloaded it, I figured everyone would realize I had read it as well!).

All those whom are telling me to read the How-To, PLEASE, GO READ IT YOURSELF! SPECIFICALLY: section 7.2, paragraph 2. There is no such directory located on the Sistina FTP server. Where is this patch?

Your are right, links on the HOWTO don't point to the right location. To
get current sources of LVM download:

It works for recent kernels (even 2.4.9) and the documentation included
explains how to create a patch specifically suited for your current Linux
source tree.
