I just subscribed to this list and checked the last three months in the
archieves, but I couldn't find anything, so here's my problem.
I installed 4 computers with debian potato with current 2.2.17 and
patched one of them with the lvs patch (both, 1.0 and 1.1). Everytime I
booted the patched machine it crashed. As far as I have seen there were
two kinds of crashes, both related to the lvs patch, tho. I attached the
debugged oops messages (bzip2'd, I think you mind getting a 200kb
mail:-)) maybe some of you can help me. I also tried this on the other
machines, with the same results. Even older kernel version (2.2.15 and
2.2.16 tested) crashed with the aproperiate patches. However, one of
those machines didn't crash on boot but instantly after typing one of
two commands into it - not any better.
The machines are standard PIII 400 with 128megs and, yes, the kernel
compiled fine, there are no interrupt conflicts nor badblocks on disc.
