Not so fast there Tex. This ain't over but the fat lady may be clearing
her throat. Riddle me this Batman. I tried it without the -H. That
was much better. No boo boos. But wait. This is me you know. ;-)
When I boot, lvm fails to start. After it boots to a console and I
login, I can restart lvm and
it works fine. So, when I boot, the drive that is set up for lvm isn't
working. It's not a big deal right now but it is about to be when /usr
gets put on lvm. If I put /usr on lvm, Houston, we have a problem. May
not boot right at all.
At this point, this fails regardless of the kernel. I may try some
older kernels in a bit tho. Also, it no longer matters if I use the
init thingy either. It fails either way. Looks like the init thingy is
working, until I break it anyway. Give me time. lol
Canek, I know you don't use lvm so, anybody have any ideas? Maybe a new
thread since this may not be init thingy related.
Well, I rebooted and wrote down the errors then searched a bit. I found
So, it seems that / needs to be mounted rw so that lvm can start. How
do I fix this you reckon? Doesn't the init thingy do that or is that
done after the init thingy is done?
I am only responsible for what I said ... Not for what you understood or
how you interpreted my words!
Miss the compile output? Hint:
