236 device-mapper <== was at 60 before the new kernel


Got it! Sorry, it's me being _dumb_!!!

With 2.6.35++, /dev/mapper/control has moved from 60 to 236!

So I fix it by recreating the control file with "mknod
/var/mapper/control c 10 253".

I got this "internal error" when I activate/deactivate the volume
group, but it seems ok. I could mount the volumes and so far it's all
good.

# vgchange -a n vg01
  Internal error: Maps lock 14217216 < unlock 14221312

Hopefully those errors above means no harm.

Thanks,
Jeff
