I've a LVM working OK. I plugged an externar USB harddisk and Linux
emulates SCSCI, so it is seen as /dev/sdc1
I formated it as ext3 and the added it as a new Physical Volume in order
to gaim more disk space. Then, create a new logical volume, say
<LOGICAL_VOLUME_**new**> and was up'n'running OK.
I assume that the USB device is recognized before LVM mount, since the
Setting up LVM Volume Groups ...done
Starting Enterprise Volume Management System ...done
Checking all file systems
fsck.ext3 Bad magic number in super-block while trying to open
the superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct
ext2 filesystem. if the device is valid and it really contains an ext2
filesystem (and not swap ou ufs or something else), then the superblock
is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock:
e2fsck - 8193 <device>
fsck failed Please repair manually
Freezes there and only can continue starting the system using Ctrl+D.
Please note that after that the system works just fine, LVM & USB device
Tried to run fsck.ext on that parition and says it's clean.
What am I missing to solve?
How can I avoid the boot sequence being stopped?
Thanks in advance. Cheers.
