I temporarily lost my sanity and tried installing ex4 over an
encrypted lvm volume.  Of course, it didn't work, I get the following
message when it tried to mount the root partition:

EXT4-fs: dm-1: not marked OK to use with test code

I have a pictures of the last couple screens of boot messages (taken
with my cell phone but readable) - are there any other post-mortem
operations I should do before reformatting and trying something more
sane?  BTW, this is with kernel 2.6.24-23.fc9 (I added a rawhide http
repo during the install to get the latest updates - I told you I
wasn't thinking straight when I started this experiment...)
