Re: [linux-lvm] LVM



Hi
it should be working regarding the tools you are using
can you send the error message
and try
ls /lib/modules
it should give you list of kernel versions you have installed
my case
ls /lib/modules
2.4.10-pre4-xfs 2.4.9-ac7 .....
and lvmcreate_initrd -nomod 2.4.10-pre4-xfs


i'm using linux-2.4.10-pre4-xfs and linux-2.4.9-ac7 with lvm-1.0.1 cvs version
but it should be working also with the old tools


and there is no problem with the mandrake kernel and the new version of lvm

It does not work. It gives me some funky messages when I try it. However, I must point out I am using LVM V 0.9.2-whatever. Are you using a new version? I have been told that the newer 1.0.1 version does not or will not work properly with Mandrake for some reason of their policy about versions or something, got me.

Hi
it should be

lvmcreate_initrd --nomod 2.4.8-12mdk
and it should create /boot/initrd-lvm-2.4.8-12mdk.gz -- the lvm-initrd

Ah, I understand. Yes, I am trying to LVMize my root partition.

you MUST run lvmcreate_initrd and use the initrd it creates if you run
an LVM root fs.

It doesn't matter if LVM is in the kernel or as a module. If your root
is not in LVM, then I don't think that you have to use initrd.

Sincerely,

So for LVM, you do need to use the lvmcreate_initrd program or not? I am still not clear on that.

If I need to make an lvmcreate_initrd, does not that mean it cannot be in the kernel?
