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. :-( Dale :-) :-) -- I am only responsible for what I said ... Not for what you understood or how you interpreted my words! Miss the compile output?
