Subject: [gentoo-user] OpenRC broke my LVM?
Date: Wed, 23 Apr 2008 05:05:10
1 Hi folks,
3 I've been running a gentoo system as my fileserver without problems for
4 a while. Its using software raid (1+0) with lvm on top, and its been a
5 dream until now.
7 The other day I did an emerge world and had a message about an sqlite
8 ebuild missing from the repository. Well I had other things to do so I
9 thought I'd leave that for now (sqlite isn't critical).
11 Now after a reboot I can't mount my LVM partitions, my raid is working
12 fine, but nothing I can do will discover my lvm partitions or volumes.
13 If i try to manually start the lvm service, I get the message about it
14 being written for baselayout-2 and not being suitable for baselayout-1.
16 I've managed to find some info about the OpenRC and baselayout-2 change,
17 however nothing seems to apply to my situation, and I certainly never
18 meant to do an upgrade that would make such a serious change.
20 Is there some way I can recover my system without having to re-install?
21 I've got a lot of data that I would cry if i lost, although I think the
22 data is ok...I'm just really confused about this baselayout-2 change.
24 Because all my partitions (except root and boot) are on LVM, I can't get
25 to see if i accidentally installed something wrong, and I can't even try
26 to re-emerge lvm etc.
28 Any tips would be greately appreciated.
30 Thanks
