Description of problem:
"Error: Cannot open device /dev/mirrored/root" error occurs in the
mirrored lvm physical volume
volume group /dev/mirrored created using above physical volume
root, usr, opt, var, etc, are logical volumes sliced out of the
volume group above.
during "Checking root filesystem" this error occurs, and we drop into
the single-user mode password check.
it appears to me that the LVM modules were not included in the last
two kernels built.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.3-1.100smp and kernel-2.6.3-1.106smp
Steps to Reproduce:
1.build a machine with a disk layout described above
2.upgrade the kernel to one of the most recent ones
3.whine and cry like a baby :)
Actual Results: dropped to single user mode
Expected Results: worked in the prior kernels just fine, so i'd
expect that it was intended to work at some point
i think it's simply that the LVM modules weren't compiled in, but i'm
not 100% certain.
Is this working with newer kernels?
