RE: [linux-lvm] Fun little horror story -- please add to FAQ if it isn't already documented




-- Ben Holness <ben bens-house org uk>


Upon the next reboot, the initrd ran fine... found and activated the
lv's... but the kernel said "no root partition" and hung.  I could
rescue boot the system from the SuSE CD -- everything was there... I
finally added a "vgdisplay -v" to the initrd's linuxrc, and
that showed me the problem.

We can add it under the general heading of why using LVM for boot volumes doesn't work on i386 platforms.

Giving /usr its own mount point genrally levaes the
root voume small, static and perfectly happy on a
small partition at the top of your disk. Using a
static link for LVM and installing it in the root
leaves the whole setup quite a bit more dependable.
