Description Greg Little 2003-03-22 22:04:15 UTC
Description of problem: Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: There is no way to enable lvm in the Advanced Server 2.1 I tried enabling it as a module in the config, but when I insmod the module, I get unresolved symbols. Also, compiling the source from sistina, patching the kernel and recompiling, even without the GPL-checking, does not work. There are no rpm's for AS2.1, however there are rpms for 8 and 7.3. I actually need the ability to resize partitions and create volumes, since I am using a Dell/AS2.1 cluster. Steps to Reproduce: 1. install kernel-source rpm. make menuconfig, modularize LVM and LVM_PROC_FS. 2. make dep modules bzImage modules install 3. init 6 4. insmod lvm Actual results: unresolved symbols Expected results: lsmod lvm Additional info:
Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2003-03-22 22:08:37 UTC
lvm is not supported in AS2.1. The code is disabled in the config because the version of LVM in 2.4.9 corrupts data in some cases and we only fixed that after the release (eg for 7.3).
Comment 2 Greg Little 2003-03-22 22:39:13 UTC
Will there ever be a newer kernel for AS2.1? It looks like the updates are to the 2.4.9 kernel rather than a newer kernel. Oracle/Dell certified AS2.1, yet in use I need to make a large number of partitions (39 and counting) but can't w/o lvm. I also can't resize existing partitions. Am I completely missing something here? Also, the lvm in the redhat rpms is 1.0.3, but sistina considers 1.0.6 to be the stable release. Is anyone working on getting lvm into AS2.1?

There hasn't been any updates to this bug over the last 4 months. What is the status of LVM for upcoming RHAS releases?
Comment 4 Greg Little 2003-11-12 18:51:15 UTC
The fix is in. I have installed and tested RHAS 3.0 and the lvm definitely works. Thanks!
