It's a KnppMyht install. dpkg -l | grep lvm shows:
ii lvm-common 1.5.8 The Logical Volume Manager for Linux (common
ii lvm10 1.0.8-2 The Logical Volume Manager for Linux
And lsmod | grep lvm shows:
lvm-mod 46464 3 (autoclean)
I geuss at this point I don't have any serious problems with creating these
links by hand, but I would appreciate soemone who has this workign telling
me exactly what links ot make. I'm thinking that this needs to run _very_
early in the startup sequence, right? Before even anything but the root
disk is mounted.
