Description Alasdair Kergon 2004-04-08 16:42:31 EDT
The full set of LVM2 commands now gets installed.
It is no longer necessary to prefix each command with 'lvm' like 'lvm 
vgchange -ay'.

The deprecated LVM1 commands (for 2.4 kernels only) have been renamed
to end in '.lvm1' e.g. '/sbin/vgchange.lvm1 -ay'.

The new LVM2 commands (e.g. '/sbin/vgchange -ay') will detect if
you're running a 2.4 kernel and transparently invoke the old LVM1
commands if necessary.

For more details of the new features and bug fixes in LVM2 please
refer to WHATS_NEW in the directory for the lvm2 package in
/usr/share/doc.

Thanks for the feedback -- added...
Comment 2 Alasdair Kergon 2004-04-16 16:00:32 EDT
There's been another change - we've moved the new lvm2 commands from
/sbin to /usr/sbin.  Suggested replacement bullet points:

      The full set of LVM2 commands is now installed in /usr/sbin.  In
boot environments where /usr is not available you should prefix each
command with "/sbin/lvm.static" (/sbin/lvm.static vgchange -ay, for
example).

      The new LVM2 commands (such as both /usr/sbin/vgchange -ay and
/sbin/lvm.static vgchange -ay) detect if you are running a 2.4 kernel
and transparently invoke the old LVM1 commands if appropriate. The 
LVM1 commands have been renamed to end with ".lvm1" (for example
/sbin/vgchange.lvm1 -ay).  LVM1 commands work only with 2.4 kernels,
not 2.6 ones.
Comment 3 Ed Bailey 2004-04-17 15:07:23 EDT
Alasdair -- thanks for the feedback!  I changed things around a bit;
how does this sound?

    * The full set of LVM2 commands is now installed in /usr/sbin/. In
boot environments where /usr/ is not available, it is necessary to
prefix each command with /sbin/lvm.static (/sbin/lvm.static vgchange
-ay, for example).

      In environments where /usr/ is available, it is no longer
necessary to prefix each command with lvm (/usr/sbin/lvm vgchange -ay
becomes /usr/sbin/vgchange -ay, for example).

    * The new LVM2 commands (such as /usr/sbin/vgchange -ay and
/sbin/lvm.static vgchange -ay) detect if you are running a 2.4 kernel,
and transparently invoke the old LVM1 commands if appropriate. The
LVM1 commands have been renamed to end with ".lvm1" (for example,
/sbin/vgchange.lvm1 -ay).

      Note

      LVM1 commands work only with 2.4 kernels. It is not possible to
use LVM1 commands while running a 2.6 kernel.

Refer to /usr/share/doc/lvm2*/WHATS_NEW for more information on LVM2.

Fine by me.
Comment 5 Ed Bailey 2004-04-18 16:52:25 EDT
Super -- thanks!
