Re: [linux-lvm] root on lvm



Hello,
I experienced also difficulties with / and lvm2.
configuration: 
   MANDRAKE 10.0, 
   kernel 2.6.3, 
   lilo 22.5.8, 
   reiserfs 3.6.11 ?
   lvm 2.00.08
 
The message I have got is something like lilo does not handle device
type 0x1f00 

Can not ensure that it is the exact message and type.

I understood that the version of lilo I use can not handle lvm2 and
reiserfs partition for / during boot ! And especially can not get boot
image in /boot.

Shame :(

regards

Pascal Garcia
