i said _devfs_ is not supported,
_lvm_ is.

  I've  gone  to  the  2.4.23 kernel with devfs and lvm support.  I know
  there  is alot or a good amount of controvery around devfs but I think
  I'll ride it out and see how it works for me.

lvm1 tools do have a problem with switching from devfs to non-devfs,
and vice-versa since they use /proc/partitions to find pvs, and do write
the pv name in the metadata. (read the list archives for the gory
details)

I have looked for this info, and haven't foud a conclusive answer. Is there a recipe (no matter how convoluted) for migrating from a devfs+lvm system to a non-devfs lvm system?
