[linux-lvm] Very long startup times of the lv*-tools



Hello linux-lvm redhat com,

I've just created a LVM here and the lv* commands are taking very long 
(lvcreate is working for 10 minutes and is keep on going). I used a 
'strace -p PID' to get some more infos and I was amazed:

------------------------------------------------------------------------

0xbfffe31c) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

[...]

There were thousand of lines with that or similar. Is that normal? Is it 
a bug?

------------------------------------------------------------------------

I've done the following (from the gentoo homepage: 
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/lvm2.xml):

% mkdir -p /etc/lvm
% echo 'devices { filter=["r/cdrom/"] }' >/etc/lvm/lvm.conf
% vgscan
% vgchange -a y
% pvcreate /dev/hde1 /dev/hdf1 /dev/hdg1
% vgcreate backup-raid /dev/hde1
% vgextend backup-raid /dev/hdf1
% vgextend backup-raid /dev/hdg1
% lvcreate -L566G -nmain  backup-raid

I'm using lvm2 2.00.08 on a 'Linux fuzz 2.6.9-gentoo-r13 #1 Wed Dec 29 
10:41:06 CET 2004 i686 AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2800+ AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux'

Is there is something known about this issue? What else can I check?
