I bet it's not current code then. I tried last week, with Debian's
"kernel-patch-xfs" version 1.0.2+20020304-2 and "kernel-patch-evms"
version 1.0.1+1.1.0-pre4-2. It would not boot, there was errors
messages about unaligned disk access or something (IIRC), and I found
mention of it in the XFS list. You (Stephen Lord) said you had code
that would hopefully fix it but that you did not want to commit it
then since you where about to leave on vacation.
Should I try a 2.5 kernel? I need one with both EVMS and XFS for this
machine! Please advise. TIA

Ok. I should have checked the patch package version number before. I
must have been sleeping.
