just doing a update for this bug.
First I have to apologise for the last change of the severity as I did
promise to not participate in a severity war.
Well, to the problem.
It gets somewhat deeper then I think before. As I have the old lvm2
installed for some days now I see that it fails to create snapshots
randomly. But it doesn't block the kernel, the resulted lvms are not
blocking the kernel and it is possible to remove them later by lvremove.
As there is no straight way to reproduce the bug this is somewhat
complicate. My assuming is that it only happens with lvms converted from
lvm1. But this is only a assuming.
So at the moment I think that the rate of failure is the same with the
old or the new userland. The only difference is that the new is blocking
in kernel somewhat.
But it is all better if the lvm is broken and can be removed than that
it will spoil the kernel. However, as I told I have to stay with kernel
2.4 for my important machines to use lvm1. (Or is there a lvm1 module or
patch to use lvm1 with kernel 2.6?)
However, I will search further on. Any help will be welcome.
