AW: [linux-lvm] Broken Harddisk in LVM

I tried to install device mapper and lvm.
Applying the kernel patches and building the new kernel worked.
But when I tried to build the device mapper lib I got the following

make[1]: Entering directory `/root/device-mapper.0.96.07/lib'
gcc -shared -Wl,-soname, \
-Wl,--version-script,.export.sym ioctl/libdevmapper.o libdm-common.o -o
/usr/i486-suse-linux/bin/ld:.export.sym:1: parse error in VERSION script
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[1]: *** [ioctl/] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/device-mapper.0.96.07/lib'
make: *** [lib] Error 2

I used the latest version of device mapper.

Best regards

Install device-mapper + LVM2 tools _additionally_ in a seperate
location and run "vgscan ; vgchange -a y -P".

That might still leave you with unusable LVs in case their beginning
is gone with the failed disk.

If you decide to do that get back to us in case you've got installation
related questions.
