Re: [linux-lvm] e2fsck probs with LVM and 2.4.9-ac9+



Good morning,

I have a question about mixing user space tools from 0.9.1_beta8 with a
2.4.9-ac14 kernel. I understood that the linux-2.4.9-acX ; X >= 9; kernels
use lvm 1.0 code already. So far I had no problems using the "old" lvm user
space tools. Do I have to expect serious problems?

Anyhow, I'll upgrade user space tools to the most recent version but I'm
really curious if it's just a coincidence that everything seems to work
nicely here. 

Regards

Werner
