Description Dennis Jacobfeuerborn 2008-03-27 09:42:29 EDT
I'm trying to boot a F9 beta image as guest using "if=virtio". I built a new initrd inside the guest to include the virtio drivers an on boot the kernel detects vda1 and vda2 correctly but then fails to find any volume groups. Booting the image with the regular "media=disk" works fine.
Comment 1 Dave Wysochanski 2008-04-01 15:03:56 EDT
Could someone from the virtualization team look at this?
Comment 2 Dave Wysochanski 2008-04-01 15:05:44 EDT
Did this fix your problem? http://firstname.lastname@example.org/msg14499.html
Comment 3 Daniel Berrange 2008-04-01 15:12:59 EDT
Could it be that vgscan is not considering 'vda*' devices as possible physical volumes ?
Comment 4 Dennis Jacobfeuerborn 2008-04-01 15:21:59 EDT
(In reply to comment #2) > Did this fix your problem? > http://email@example.com/msg14499.html That was my initial problem but after rebuilding the initrd the kernel found the virtual devices (vda1 and vda2) but now it still doesn't find the volume group.
Comment 5 Dennis Jacobfeuerborn 2008-04-01 16:19:13 EDT
Ok, I tweaked the initrd and added a "-vvv" to the vgscan which reveals the following: "/dev/vda2: Skipping: Unrecognized LVM device type 252"
Comment 6 Daniel Berrange 2008-04-01 16:29:27 EDT
What version of the lvm2 RPM do you have - this should have been fixed a short while ago according to the changelogs: * Wed Mar 5 2008 Jeremy Katz <firstname.lastname@example.org> - 2.02.33-10 - recognize vio disks
Comment 7 Dennis Jacobfeuerborn 2008-04-01 16:54:12 EDT
The latest version in rawhide is lvm2-2.02.33-9.fc9.i386. According to koji 2.02.33-10 never made it there: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/packageinfo?packageID=221
Comment 8 Daniel Berrange 2008-04-01 17:02:37 EDT
Looks like Jeremy forgot to request the build after committing to CVS...
Comment 9 Dennis Jacobfeuerborn 2008-04-01 19:31:44 EDT
I rebuilt the lvm2 package with the sources from CVS (sources.redhat.com:/cvs/lvm2), installed it on the guest and rebuilt the initrd but the boot still fails with the same error.
Comment 10 Daniel Berrange 2008-04-02 14:55:30 EDT
Created attachment 300114 [details] Fixed virtio block device patch The current patch for virtio in cvs is broken. This fixes it. With this applied i can successfully run 'pvcreate /dev/vda'
Comment 11 Daniel Berrange 2008-04-02 14:56:30 EDT
Created attachment 300115 [details] Fix clvmd compilation Oh and the lvm2 package does not actually compile under rawhide. It is missing a #include <limits.h> in the clvmd.c file. This patch fixes that brokenness too
Comment 12 Daniel Berrange 2008-04-02 14:58:11 EDT
It appears that commits to the LVM package are restricted in Fedora, so someone else will have to apply these and do a build...
Comment 13 Dennis Jacobfeuerborn 2008-04-02 18:31:15 EDT
With the two patches applied the guest now boots properly except for the following error: Mounting local filesystems: mount: special device UUID=cd7b36bf-1578-44dd-857c-9a8a9c515580 does not exist The fstab entry looks like this: UUID=cd7b36bf-1578-44dd-857c-9a8a9c515580 /boot ext3 defaults 1 2 When I log in and try the respective command from rc.sysinit "mount -a -t nonfs,nfs4,smbfs,ncpfs,cifs,gfs,gfs2 -O no_netdev" I don't get this error and /boot is mounted properly.
Comment 14 Jeremy Katz 2008-04-02 23:23:53 EDT
Thanks Dan, applied both (insert grumble about device name changing here) and building Dennis -- the latter like a separate problem and should probably be filed separately
Comment 15 Jesse Keating 2008-04-03 14:38:55 EDT
Closing this rawhide as Dennis already tested with the patches and had success.
