I'm getting various lvm/devmapper errors when creating and removing
snapshots on debian Sarge.
device-mapper - ioctl cmd 9 failed: Cannot allocate memory
Couldn't load device 'myvg-www2_snapshot'.
Unable to deactivate logical volume "myvg-www2_snapshot"
I am using:
LVM version: 2.01.04 (2005-02-09)
Library version: 1.01.00-ioctl (2005-01-17)
Driver version: 4.3.0
or package names on sarge:
My lvm subsystem is now locked by an unkillable process.
I think the only option is to reboot, but I have a lot of
data in LVM volumes, and don't want to risk losing it.
Has anyone else experienced these types of errors?
Is there a bug fix for this?
There do not appear to be any updated packages for debian sarge.
I could install from source, if I know this is a known problem
with a known fix.
