I haven't used keepalived with lvs in ages, but I believe it works 
directly with the kernel, and therefore does not strictly require 
ipvsadm.  Please note that ipvsadm is a userspace tool for 
manipulating/querying ipvs entries and is very useful.  I've never used 
lvs on any machine where I didn't also install ipvsadm.

Hope this helps,
