Description Jonathan Earl Brassow 2006-06-08 16:48:58 EDT
A proper daemon will reparent itself to init.  This happens if you fork and the
parent exits (amoung other things).  However, clvmd never exits, so when
creating a mirror with clvmd running, a zombie process will be left if you
remove the mirror (or suspend/resume cycles happen).

We need to rewrite the way the daemon is launched.

Waiting for patch to be added to LVM2/device-mapper
Comment 3 Alasdair Kergon 2006-07-04 16:40:39 EDT
The launcher needs fixing to deal with SIGCHILD correctly.
Comment 4 Alasdair Kergon 2006-07-04 16:43:44 EDT
Applying temporary workaround having dmeventd as separate binary.
