RE: [linux-lvm] using 160GB IDE drives under linux with LVM.



Is this specific to 2.4.X kernels?  I'm running 2.5.0, and I just noticed
that the 160 gig drives I was using are also partitioned at only 128Gigs.

This is a kernel IDE driver limit.  You need to patch with Andre Hedrik's
IDE patches to support IDE devices over this size.
