Slackware 10.1 how to go to the testing/2.6 kernel and back again?
I'm running a slackware 10.1 with the 2.4 IDE kernel and LVM1. Root is on a normal EXT3 partition. I want to setup an encrypted file system (not root) with truecrypt. However truecrypt requires a 2.6 kernel. So I installed the 2.6.10 kernel from /testing. I then found out that LVM1 does not work with the 2.6 kernels.
My question is: when I install the devicemapper and LVM2 packages (after removing LVM1), will I be able to return to my old 2.4 kernel with LVM1 by just removing LVM2 and re-installing LVM1? Will activating the PV/LV's with LVM2 change them, to make them incompatible with LVM1?
I have a few custom written programs running on this system so I try to modify the 10.1 defaults as little as I can.
Thanks for your time.
