For device mapper: did configure followed by make install. There is no patch for 2.4.22 so I assumed that the kernel was already patched (mistake?). LVM and

device mapper are already loadable modules, so no need to recompile kernel (correct?). Added script to /etc/modules.conf and reboot. DMESG shows LVM

version 1.0.5+(22/07/2002) module loaded.

pvscan -h gives me the following:

Logical Volume Manager 1.0.3
Heinz Mauelshagen, Sistina Software  19/02/2002 (IOP 10)

Why is it telling me 1.0.3 when DMESG says 1.0.5+?

1.0.5+ is the kernel driver version 1.0.3 is the version of the pvscan proram

After trying all of the above, found patches for 2.4.22 via mailing list archives (2.4.22-dm-1.tar.bz2) and upacked to get directory 2.4.22-dm-1 containing patch files 00001 through 00016 and INDEX. Used cat to create one large patch file (file patches-2.4.22.patch attached) with all the patches (mistake?) and did patch --dry-run -p1
i would try appliyng them one by one.

with this file (only dry run, so nothing applied yet). This indicates some patches will apply, some are already applied, and quite a few will fail (see attached patches-2.4.22.log file). Is this because I installed device mapper before the patches, or do these patches just not fit my system?
2.4.22-dm-1.tar.bz2appliest to vanilla 2.4.22 kernel
redhat/fedora kernel has been modified from vanilla
either you are able to massage those patches or you use vanilla or you
bug fedora developers to patch their kernel for dm.

Also, HOWTO says I need 1.0.6 or later (I assume this is the driver version, not the library version?) - do I need another kernel patch to do that, is it included in the patches I am trying to apply, or will that install as part of LVM2?
1.0.6 is for lvm 1, redhat lvm1 is heavily modified as well
if you devide for a vanilla kernel and want both lvm1 and lvm2 i;d
suggest using recent lvm tolls as well.
If you have not the skill to o all this, stay with fedora and wait for
them to upgrade
