[linux-lvm] LVM to LVM2 Kernel 2.6 migration, RAID 1



Hi: I'm trying to get lvm2 running on a Debian box as I also migrate to 2.6. Unfortunately, I am not able to boot
into the 2.6 kernel, getting the "VFS: Unable to mount root fs.." error (from memory).


Now, my setup is that I DO NOT have /boot and / on LVM, but they are raided (RAID 1, hardware, adaptec) together: For FYI here is the output from df:

/dev/md1 303260 228986 58617 80% /
tmpfs 1676944 0 1676944 0% /dev/shm
/dev/md0 155439 16761 130653 12% /boot
/dev/mapper/VGSystem-usr 8773016 4147920 4268584 50% /usr
/dev/mapper/VGSystem-var 10321208 521336 9275584 6% /var
/dev/mapper/VGSystem-home 115894732 9249448 103112976 9% /home
/dev/mapper/VGSystem-tmp 495844 8253 461991 2% /tmp
/dev/mapper/VGSystem-usr_local 4128448 676460 3242276 18% /usr/local


I have read about setting up a mkinitrd script, although it seems that this is only needed if / is on lvm. I have Fusion MPT, RAID 1, SCSI disk, etc all compiled into the kernel.

Any ideas?

Cheers, Paul
