I don't normally LVM the / partition, so I didn't think of it. I'll try to, er, open my mind out of my environment for future helpful suggestions. Actually, the thread was an example of why I don't LVM /. I think it adds another layer I'd rather not have to deal with when things go casters up. But that is just My Way and it is not The Only Way. Not a knock on Neuby, since it wasn't installed by him. How goes the battle, by the way? W.
