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



Why is he brave, it is just a converted 2.4.15-pre5 with a change to the version number if I remember correctly that has a filesystem bug when you umount during a reboot. As long as he doesn't reboot and/or umount his data is save. :-)

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.

No, it's at the IDE driver level. There are patches to get around
this that are being considered for the mainstream kernel (Andrei H.
I believe).


Brave man running 2.5.0, the dot-zero release of a development
kernel.

 now, I've added SCSI-devices that where > 500GiB with ease into LVM,
 but here I stumble.  is there some easy solution out there that I've
 missed?

 the box currently runs vanilla 2.4.16, only patched with LVM-1.0.1
 from 26/11.  patches or anything people want to toss at this will be
 highly appreciated.  we have two of these beasts from Maxtor, and
 stand to loose about 60GiB of space, which isn't all that neat.

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

Cheers, Andreas
