Re: [linux-lvm] LVM and devfs



Thank you.  I solved part of my problem by getting the devfs daemon loaded. Now working through the rest of the doc.  I realized after some time that LVM can coexist with devfs and they are not going to bump heads.

I believe your problem is that you need an initrd that includes LVM
stuff. Try the command "lvmcreate_initrd", then ensure that the new
lvm_initrd file is loaded with lilo (I use grub so I can't help you with
lilo). RH uses their own initrd, so you should be able to use the
existing lilo.conf as a guide. If you have an unusual setup you may have
to mount the initrd file, and edit it yourself.
