Re: Unable to boot with LVM mount on USB drive (Fedora 10)

Hi all,

I haven't seen this reported anywhere else and it's kind of driving me

I've got an LVM volume group that extends across two internal drives and one external USB drive. Prior to Fedora 10, the volume group initializes fine during boot and the filesystems listed in /etc/fstab mount fine. As
of Fedora 10, the initialization of the volume group fails apparently
because the USB drive is not yet registered when LVM attempts to bring
up the volume group.

I have a workaround, namely the following in rc.local:

vgchange -ay Backups
mount -o defaults,noatime /dev/Backups/Backup /backup
mount -o defaults,noatime /dev/Backups/Staging /staging

Obviously this is non-optimal since it bypasses the automatic fsck step.

I am not sure, but I suspect that you can fix this by rebuilding
your initrd, including the usb_storage module this time.


Just got home to try it out, that did the trick nicely.

BTW for those that may have influence, would it be unreasonable to expect the default initrd to include usb-storage?

Thanks much!
