I have re-emerged dracut several times and it still gives the same
error.  I even tried changing versions once to see if it was a bug or
something.  I found others with errors for other modules but no one
posted a fix.  It's a head scratcher for sure.

Since lvm is not needed for booting YET, I think my main problem is the
kernel and lvm.  Now, even if I boot with the old kernel and no init
thingy, I have to restart lvm before it will let me mount my /data
partition.  I think when I added the needed stuff for dracut and the
init thingy, it messed up something for lvm.  I can't put my finger on
what yet tho.

The directory you mentions is there and there is all sorts of goodies in
there.  I'm not sure why dracut is not finding it.

I'm gonna be gone for a while but will be back as soon as I can.  I got
to take a friend to court.  :-(

Miss the compile output?  Hint:
