Description Arenas Belon, Carlo Marcelo 2001-04-05 08:43:50 UTC
taken into consideration that is included on the default kernel, and that can be compiled as a runtime module, i don't see why don't include such a usefull feature. the kernel needs a patch to get (on 2.4.3 ther is 0.9.1_beta2) from the old driver to the latest (stabler) one 0.9.1_beta6 i am attaching the patch (applied on kernel 2.4.2-0.1.40 on patch130, without any problem) also the lvm binaries would be needed, i am uploading a "redhified" SPEC that could be used to build the lvm usertools package. all the packages are on use an available from http://www.sajinet.com.pe/rhbeta/ using the beta user and password.

The old and new LVM have different on-disk layouts. This means that until Linus accepts the new layout, this is not a supportable option for us. (remember raid in 2.2 :) Also the "current" LVM is indeed very broken, so we cannot enable current LVM for that reason. However, if Linus takes the updated LVM, we will ship with that enabled in an errata kernel if/when we make one for other reasons anyway. For this reason, I close this bug as 'deferred', eg we'll come back to it later.
