Some of you may remember my problems with lvm after an update in
I'm now headed back towards the same situation. I have a load of updates to do
according to emerge -DNavu world but I've had to mask all upgraded versions of
udev, mdadm and lvm as every time I upgrade them, it breaks my disk access.
Whenever I upgrade these packages (I'm not which one of those 3 is actually to
blame, and I don't want to chance it) I can no longer access the lvm volumes on
my disks. I have no idea what is causing it.
This means I cannot do a world update as those manually masked packages are
blocking a lot of other packages.
A few months on, is anyone able to shed light on why updating any of those 3
packages causes my system to be unbootable and my data to be inaccessible?
I would really like to keep my system up to date, but as you can understand, I'm
loathe to make changes that will give me a borked system yet again.
Grateful for advice anyone can give as my system is now getting quite out of
