Re: [linux-lvm] Can't use LVM1 VG/LVs under LVM2; LV xxx: inconsistent LE count 32 != 64

This is confirmed as fixed. Thanks David and Bryn for the referral to the fix!

I am surprised that this bug survived in the wild for so long. I had unsuccessfully tried to upgrade this system several times in the last two years. I had previously thought it was the funky Promise ATA controller in this host.

Thanks for the help.  I'll be closing Debian bug #422963 here soon.


For documentation/spidering purposes;


LVM2 unable to use LVM1 striped logical volumes
LVM2 is unable to import striped LVM1 volumes

Thanks for the replies.  I see that Debian has a lvm2 package version 2.02.24-6 out, and I'll try to install that.  However, I'll have to force the install, as 2.4 kernels are completely dead on Debian Unstable now, due to recent versions of libc6 requiring NPTL.  Hopefully I won't get into a critical dependency problem.

I'm having a problem getting a Debian system from Linux kernel 2.4 to

get the 2.6 kernel/LVM2 to activate the VGs at all.

I've filed a Debian bug, which has additional information, here;

The interesting error messages under 2.6 include;

Hi Jesse,

This sounds like:


This is fixed upstream in versions from v2_02_24:

Try to fix reading in of lvm1 striped LVs.
There are two fixes other than improving variable names and updating
code layout etc.

The loop counter is incremented by area_len instead of area_len * stripes;

the 3rd _check_stripe parameter is no longer multiplied by number of
