Comment 1 Alasdair Kergon 2005-04-04 16:39:20 UTC
if lvm2 can't write to /etc, but you're running a *read-only* lvm2
command, it shouldn't fail.  It does - and -An has no effect.  The code that
creates the backup and archive directories need moving and refining.

Comment 2 Alasdair Kergon 2005-05-04 13:29:56 UTC
Should be fixed in 2.01.08-2.1
