Re: [linux-lvm] Lock Patch

well it's suposed to be known,
almost every program( or every exept the comercial) for linux goes this way
./configure make make install , and when you are instaling binaries from rpm they are configured for the most common PC and then compiled with " make " installing the rpm = make install
and smth of the kind should be mentioned somewhere , probably in README or INSTALL in the lvm dir

i've forgoten

you saying that typing, "make" in the "PATCHES" directory will cause a patch to be generated specifically for my kernel?

thats actually the work of ./configure it trys to find out what you
have, and what you need
in PATCHES it chooses from all the patches the ones your kernel need ,
and " make " put them together in one patch for your kernel

What name will it be given?
      The documentation says to add a dash dash kernel-dir= or something or other after the "./configure" command, are you saying it is better to use "./configure" absent that appended statement?
       Where do I untar the LVM source? Does it matter where I do so? May I do it in /tmp?
