Package: lvm2
Version: 2.02.98-4
Severity: normal


Please to not set --with-thin-check=/usr/sbin/thin_check

1) It's non existant, and if at all it should rather be 
   /usr/local/sbin/thin_check, since it's a locally installed file,
   and not something by the package system.

2) Don't set and non-existing file at all... a system might ship this file
   but with totally different meaning... and that may even lead to corruptions
   when unnoted.

As lvm2 depends on that file with thin clients... and it will require
an exit status of 0 to proceed...

... please set: --with-thin-check=/bin/false
which should serve as a safe default.
