Re: [linux-lvm] Grub with UUID



Ray,
When I use root=/dev/mapper/myvg-root (example) i can mount my root
partition, but when  i use UUID  i cannot mount and the lvm was
included in initramfs, i've checked it. It's too strange..

I get my UUID through vol_id, it's a tools of udev.

Thanks for reply,
