[linux-lvm] / on LVM2

Hello everbody,

I ran into a problem testing LVM2 on my system.
I have / on LVM, and booting into kernel 2.5.50 (with dm compiled in,
libdevmapper and LVM2-tools installed) fails, because the kernel cannot mount 
the root fs. I have tried building an initrd using SuSE's mk_initrd and 
lvmcreate_initrd, but I get the same problem.

Do these scripts have to be modified in any way to work with LVM2 ?
(something like calling devmap_mknod.sh at some point ?)

Thanks for any advice,
