[linux-lvm] Question when installing LVM

If you are building a newer version of lvm from source for redhat 7.3 
(there is one already compiled and provided as a module), you  need 
to be sure you have the kernel-source rpm installed. Since redhat 
uses /usr/src/linux-2.4 instead of /usr/src/linux as the kernel 
source base you either need to create the /usr/src/linux link 
yourself or when you run the LVM configure command use the option 
--with-kernel_dir=/usr/src/linux-2.4, this is what I do.

I have had no problems with lvm on rh7.3.
