Hi list,

if i compile lvm2 (from today) with this configure:

./configure --with-thin=internal --with-cache=internal
--with-replicators=internal --enable-udev_sync --enable-udev_rules

then the following occures:
make -C lib
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/lvm2/lib'
gcc -c -I. -I../include -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -DDM_IOCTLS -Wall -Wundef
-Wshadow -Wcast-align -Wwrite-strings -Wmissing-prototypes

In file included from config/config.c:70:0:
config/config_settings.h:257:1: error: 'DMEVENTD_PATH' undeclared here
(not in a function)
make[1]: *** [config/config.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/lvm2/lib'
make: *** [lib] Error 2

if i take
./configure --with-thin=internal --with-cache=internal
--with-replicators=internal --enable-udev_sync --enable-udev_rules
--enable-cmdlib --enable-dmeventd

all compiles fine. But I dont know, what dmevetd-flag is good for. Do i
run into problems on a Ubuntu 12.04, if i enable additionally
--enable-cmdlib --enable-dmeventd
  before installing?
