An updated lvm2 package that resolves several issues is now available.
The lvm2 package contains support for Logical Volume Management (LVM).
This updated lvm2 package provides fixes for the following bugs:
* With this update, the "File-based locking initialization failed." warning, which was displayed during the system start-up, is now suppressed. (BZ#673975
* Under certain circumstances, mainly on shared storage systems, the buffered read of a device was used instead of a direct device access. This could result in the use of outdated metadata values. This update ensures that all device scan operations use the direct device access. (BZ#673981
* This update fixes a faulty initialization which in certain cases lead to a full unconditional rescan of devices. As a result, all lvm operations were slowed down and exhibited poor performance. (BZ#673986
All users of lvm2 are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves these issues.
