I am using Fedora 1 with some packages updated from the fedora 
development in order to use kernel 2.6 and LVM2. The operation `lvm 
pvscan' and `lvm vgscan' are very slow, taking about 20-30 min. Is this 
normal, or is this because there is no /etc/lvm.conf file?

Here are the system settings:


Root partitions on a SCSI disk, no LVM.
Some data partitions on an 80G IDE disk, with LVM2: 1 PV  1 VG  3 LVs.
