Re: Problem with LVM2 partition under Edgy

Hello again pat,

I looked at the logs and I can answer some questions.

> Some questions:

>From what the log says it is using extended attributes and inotify.

"070216 1121501707 05970 Beagle  WARN: Extended attributes are not
supported on this filesystem.  Performance will suffer as a result."

"070216 1123523921 05970 Beagle DEBUG: Stopping inotify threads"

Now I really don't know the difference between them and I will research

Like I said, my "/home" partition is an LVM2 Volume which contains 3
ext3 physical  extends which are (2 partitions(40GB,100GB) and 1
disk(350GB) both are sata).

unmae -r = 2.6.17-11-generic

I will also like know how I can do this. But I will research.

How this arrangement came about is a long story, it happened during my
Windowz switch.
