Well, for me its not a false alarm, sort of. Mine fails to start and
then works later on or after I restart lvm, sort of iffy here. This is
what mine looks like:
Setting up the Logical Volume Manager . . .
File-based locking initialisation failed
*Failed to setup the LVM [!!]
* Error: lvm failed to start
After all that, it's downhill sort of. Me, I get that with or without a
init thingy. I'm on Gentoo kernel 3.2.11. I'm using lvm2-2.02.95-r1.
From what I found, it does this because / is mounted ro. It can't write
the locking file. I thought those were in /var but . . .
Also, If I restart lvm after it boots, it starts fine and all the lvm
stuff shows up. Maybe this one isn't just me. o_O

Miss the compile output? Hint:
