I have a similar thing on my ~x86, but the difference is that I know why I get it. I have successfully be able to create an initramfs that does a vgscan, vgchange -a y and mounts /usr (which is on LVM). But now I (naturally) I get "LVM failed to start" (and of cause "failed to mount /usr) when openrc processes the init-scripts. So, my question is really - should I remove lvm from the init-process and put noauto in /etc/fstab for /usr? Even if it is on my playground box I still want to be able to boot it. When these two "issues" are solved I'm going to let my system update udev. -- Dan Johansson, <http://www.dmj.nu> *************************************************** This message is printed on 100% recycled electrons! ***************************************************
