[linux-lvm] "Can't deactivate volume group" on shutdown


When I shutdown (or halt) on the console I get the message:

Can't deactivate volume group "vg00" with 1 open
logical volume(s)

Which seems reasonable because my root partition is a
logical volume, but I'm new to LVM2 and figure
it's better to ask now than suffer wierd data
corruption later.

Is this message normal? Do I have a problem?

Here's more detail:

/dev/vg00 volume group with all of /dev/hda5
/dev/vg00/swap 400MB swap
