Re: [linux-lvm] is devfs required?

  We're using LVM 1.0 on kernel 2.2.20 with SMP and without devfs just fine.

   I notice from your kernel version (2.4.17-19mdk) that you are using
Mandrake.  Try compiling from pristine sources.  Who knows what Mandrake has
done to their kernel or tools?

  Also, Mandrake uses Red Hat's goofy "GCC 2.96" compiler by default.  Try
using "kgcc" to compile your kernel and LVM tools instead.  Red Hat's
compiler is notorious for causing weird problems.
