A clean install is how I got here. :-/

Well, "clean install" doesn't include completely recreating the LVM
group; I *really* don't want to do that.

The fact that the volumes are accessible in rescue mode suggests to me
that there's no fundamental compatibility problem; rather, I think
something's just not getting loaded at the right time.  I've filed this
bug on the issue:


I'm not sure if it should be against mkinitrd or kernel (or something
else); for the moment it's filed against the first.

I decided to try the upgrade route instead. I did a clean install of
Fedora 9; then did a yum upgrade to 10. Unfortunately, I have exactly
the same problem. But this time, there's a left over kernel from Fedora
9 that I can boot to. Booting to this kernel works; though it's not
without its (unrelated) side effects.
