Hello list.
First post. Sorry  if this has already been discussed. I have search a 
while with no luck.
I need to mount a home directory for a user from a lvolume.
For instance, I created
  ACTIVE            '/dev/vg1/sebahome' [5.00 GB] inherit

and need it mounted on /home/seba
However, when I mount it on /home/seba permissions get root:root

orion:~# ls -ld /home/seba
drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 2009-05-02 02:34 /home/seba

I think that

seba at orion:~$ ls -la /dev/vg1/sebahome
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 24 2009-05-02 04:25 /dev/vg1/sebahome -> 
seba at orion:~$ ls -la /dev/mapper/vg1-sebahome
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 254, 3 2009-05-02 04:25 /dev/mapper/vg1-sebahome

is the reason.
Is there any way to create the special access node with other owner:group
like the
vxassist --user --group in veritas?
Or is there any mount option I am now aware of?

Thanks in advance,
Sebastian Muñiz
