LVM installation to Mandrake


Can somebody tell me what is the command to patch the Kernel with LVM patches? there is article about it but neither the article nor the INSTALL file in the after unpacking the LVM tgz file doesn't tell You this, and that's why I STUCK FOR 3 WEEKS. I have no Idea how to patch and the Kernel cause i don't know the COMMAND.

Sorry but I am pissed of at peaple who wrote the below article for newbies, and don't apply to the content enought details, aspecialy when they talk about quotting "Patching Command " of the article and never show the command just partion. Look at "Listing 2: The patch command " line you will see that the command is not there. Do you know the command or steps to do in installing the LVM for Mandrake 9.0 ?

Here is the link to the article

Thx to all of you.

I installed Mandrake 9.2 and I did a "urpmi lvm" and it installed the necessary app. Don't think it patched the kernel.

If you use the drakconf you need to
toggle to expert mode
create the LVM partition,
format the partition,
then add the partition.

It can be tricky because the instructions aren't clear.
