Speaking of device-mapper : With a FC1 system w/ Arjan's 2.6 kernel and
related packages, I managed to not have the main /dev/mapper/control node
to get device mapper working (where or when is it created?) nor did the
dm_mod kernel module get automatically loaded when I started trying to set
up the lvm2 volumes.

It was very confusing and I had to hunt down all the way into the "scripts"
directory of the pristine sources of device-mapper, which I got from the
source rpm, in order to get the major/minor numbers I needed to create the
file myself (/etc/makedev.d doesn't know about it either).

[root sk8 root]# ls -l /dev/mapper/control
crw-------  1 root root 10, 63 Dec 14 09:03 /dev/mapper/control

As for the dm_mod kernel module not being loaded, could it be that some
entries in /etc/modprobe.conf.dist are missing?
