LVM2 userland won't overwrite the LVM1 devices left over during the upgrade. LVM2 needs them to be soft links to device-mapper devices. If you move the devices aside, the next boot will probably work. Yes, this unfortunately means you can't (easily) share the same root fs between 2.4 and 2.6 kernels if you use LVM.



Would be really nice if someone put together an upgrade procedure for systems using LVM if there is any way to do it..

Later..
