[linux-lvm] Re: problem with lvm on root-fs



Hi erveryone!
I'm a little bit closer now. I've create an initrd with lvmcreate_initrd.
In this initrd there was no module for my mylex-raid-controller. I've fixed 
that problem, e.g. put the kernel module in it and changed linuxrc.
After rebooting there's another kernel panic, but on this time the system 
finds my volume groups. Output:

kernel panic: no init found. Try passing init= to...

This is a little bit strange. I checked the initrd another time and in the 
ramdisk-bin-dir there's the bash and sh.
A little help would be nice!

Greetings

Stefan Weigel

P.S.: I'm using SLES7.2 with the standard-packages.
