[OT]: Re: [linux-lvm] RH7.2 + kernel 2.4.17(or 16) + LVM 1.0.2



That is a curious remark, on several occasions Alan Cox has said that he compiles and runs his kernels using a current RedHat compiler. His kernel releases are generally known for their stability. There were known problems with certain versions, but the recent releases I believe both of them from 7.1 and 7.2 are fine. In fact, as a general rule the LKML recommends not using a 3.X compiler (they do it, but not for production systems as I recall).

A little googling comes up with this:

http://kltp.kldp.org/eunjea/fun/archive/0000.html

I know there are several better ones, but I don't have time to hunt them down right now.

Read that thread and there are several prominate hackers that say 2.96.XX where XX > 76 work fine (some of them don't work for RH :-).

Take both Anders and my advice with a grain of salt. We say opposite things, the most telling piece of advice is read the Documentation in the kernel tree and notice it claims the RH compiler should work but that some other random version is the preferred compiler, and 3.0.X isn't anywhere on that list as of Nov of last year according to the thread.

The only other question is what does sistina test there code with? I would use that one. But then again you the original poster didn't ask about that. I doubt your problems involve any of this information.


Thanks, Kirby

You should make sure you do NOT use GCC that comes with RH 7.2 as it is

I am using GCC 3.03 and Kernel 2.4.18-rc1 (though I have tried most
kernels since 2.4.10) with LVM 1.0.2 with ReiserFS ontop. This is
working fine.

RH7.2 + kernel 2.4.17(or 16) + LVM 1.0.2


       Has anyone tried this combo yet? After build of LVM and the new
ernel( everything compiled like clock work ) the system hangs on reboot
only after creation of a VG and mounting an LV) ...it searches for the boot
devices, finds it and then hangs. I thought it could have been the new
kernel so I rebuilt the system ( with kernel 2.4.17 + LVM ) prior to
creating a VG and LV I rebooted a few times and no problem.


       I just wanted to see if anyone else has had the same problem, so I've
provided no details. If not, I'll just call it "operator head space" and go
back through the docs. If anyone is interested in details for there own
knowledge or the project...I will be more than happy to supply them.



Thanks,
Chris
