After playing around for a bit I have gotten lvm to work under
2.4.0-test9, using a Debian install that is mostly potato, but with a
few deb's (like libc6) from woody thrown in.
The hard part was getting the userspace tools to work. Heinz,
*pretty please with sugar on top* put out a new version. Crawling
through all those patches to figure out what would be the best
combination wasn't really all that fun. To me it would be a lot easier
just to come out with a 0.8final2 and prevent this.
I have a deb at http://maski.org/lvm/ if anyone else on debian needs a
newer set that the 0.8i version that is official.
One weird thing: /proc/lvm reports:
Global: 61650 bytes malloced IOP version: 6 2:24:42 active
but in in the 0.8final source lvm.h has this:
#define LVM_DRIVER_IOP_VERSION 7
Is that right?
You're just jealous because the voices only talk to me.
