Linux 2.6.18 and the evms package

I have never gotten around to looking into LVM but the ubuntu vmware images I stared with have an LVM volume and it has caused me nothing but problems šŸ™‚

The latest was just after I installed the new kernel and was not able to mount a non LVM volume:

# mount /dev/sdb4 /vol/F
mount: /dev/sdb4 already mounted or /vol/F busy

I also has some error messages in dmesg (device mapper couln’t add device to table)

All these problems just went away when I removed the evms package and did a reboot! I really need to start reading about LVM (and apparently emvs)
