go to http://qa.mandrakesoft.com/ and file a bug against mkinitrd
but please, do remember that "approximately" won't help, i would need to
know exactly what you read on your screen and more details about your
configuration to fix this in a timely manner.


btw it does not write that "The lv is not complete and mounted read
only.", it writes "Partial mode. Incomplete volume groups will be
activated read-only." and that is normal.
