LVM messages in Slackware


Sometime ago i was having problems with the file system on a partition. It seems that I managed to invoke some aspect of LVM

logical volume manager....

And now I get messages about it when I power down etc. It doesn't seem to effect anything. I haven't greated any volume groups. There are no /dev/vg** folders.

How come this starts up when i boot my PC.

And how can I turn it off?

I didn't edit any of the start up files.....

I think you were able to label a physical volume (pv in lvm speak)

type 'pvs' or 'lvm pvs' and see if any PV is listed, if so you need to remove the label from this volume. (vgs and lvs will list volume groups and logical volumes, but since you say there are none this can't be a problem)

use 'pvremove' or 'lvm pvremove' for this with the name of the device you discovered above.

the stuff for the LVM is in /etc/rc.d/rc.S but this won't cause problems since the vgscan will return a not-zero value in case there are no volume groups defined
