Re: [linux-lvm] vgchange -a y /dev/System fails



A little while ago I had the same problems - the only way i could get around 
it  was using 2.4.16-xfs.  I was using 2.4.17-xfs+lvm (1.0.1) and when a 
snapshot failed I couldn't remove it and when I rebooted the system would 
hang.  By having a 2.4.16-xfs kernel with lvm-1.0.1rc4(ish) it would fix the 
problems on the fly during bootup and all was happy.  YMMV  At the time I did 
ask the mailling list why 2.4.16-xfs was more robust than 2.4.17-xfs+lvm; 
however, I never recieved an answer.
