So the init thingy is going to print all that stuff each time? Or is that the debug stuff you had me add to the grub line? Please say it is so. It's one reason I checked my email. I was counting and realized the debug stuff that was added may haver done all that. Taking a deep breath helped tho. ;-) I still want my hands on that neck tho. lol When I booted into the new kernel and got what I thought was errors, I did run dracut -H -f /boot/init<thingy here> and rebooted with it. When it got booted, I could not get LVM to work. It is /data that has LVM for now. I plan to add /usr and /var later on tho. The /data partition has my videos and such on it. I plan to reorganize all this under /home, which will be on LVM too, later on. Also, while I was booted in the new kernel, I re-emerged lvm2 and then restarted the service. Still a no go. Attaching kernel config file this time, since it could be the issue. Maybe I added something I shouldn't have? Got to get shower and such for tomorrow so back in a bit. No plans to count things right now. Dale :-) :-) -- I am only responsible for what I said ... Not for what you understood or how you interpreted my words! Miss the compile output?
