I have stumbled across this thread by googling for the "incorrect 
metadata area header checksum" message mentioned above, because 
that's the message I am seeing when booting my Debian Sid system that 
I installed on my Toshiba Satellite 3000-100 laptop (which is almost 
three years old) using the debian-installer daily-build from 
2004-06-04 almost two weeks ago. In addition, I'm getting "unlink 
failed, read-only file-system" messages when the system shuts down 
and lvm tries to unlink the device nodes.

I have seen another message in this thread where Martin Michlmayr 
recommended to install an updated version of the lvm2 package, and 
then to re-install. Is there another way to fix this? What could be 
the consequences of these errors? My system seems to work just fine 
despite these lvm messages on bootup and shutdown.
