I'm trying to build the 2.2.15 Kernel with LVM 0.8.
I have patched the kernel with patch-2.2.13-LVM-0.8i.gz that worked fine no
errors reported. I made the change as outlined in Micheal's message
>> Actually, on line 362 of lvm.c in your kernel source, block/drivers,

The kernel then builds fine. With LVM compiled in rather than as a module.
I then patched LVM with patch-lvm_0.8final-2
Uncommented MAKEFLAGS = -j2 since this is a twin CPU system
LVM built and installed without error though it did complian about
about not using lseek64, :-)
The partion I wanted to use with LVM has already been used with LVM 0.7 so I
changed the partition type to 8e (was fe).
ran vgscan and got vgscan -- invalid i/o protocol version
[root at kingair /root]# vgscan -vd
<1> lvm_get_iop_version -- CALLED
<22> lvm_check_special -- CALLED
<22> lvm_check_special -- LEAVING
<1> lvm_get_iop_version -- AFTER ioctl ret: 0
<1> lvm_get_iop_version -- LEAVING with ret: 5
vgscan -- invalid i/o protocol version
I check the device /dev/lvm was in place.
[root at kingair /root]# ls -l /dev/lvm
crw-r----- 1 root root 109, 0 May 6 23:00 /dev/lvm
[root at kingair /root]#
So. now I'm out of things to try I tought about using a 2.3.X kernel but
I really don't want to use a beta kernel.
The distribution I'm using is RedHat 6.2 (Zoot).
So what should I try next.
