Description of problem:
I tried to install FC2t2, I partitioned using Disk Druid.  I asked for
one LVM group, vg00, on a single disk partition with one volume in it
called home.  On the first boot, it complained "No such file or
directory while trying to open /dev/vg00/home" when it tried to fsck
it and dropped me to single user maintenance.  lvm vgdisplay shows me
that vg00 was created, but the directory /dev/vg00 doesn't exist and I
get stuff like "/dev/mapper/control: open failed: No such file or

For someone who's used to dealing with it, this stuff is easy enough
to set up by hand after installing.  LVM/RAID support in the installer
(Disk Druid?) has had weird quirks like this for a long time.  I
remember the installer would just crash if I tried to set up RAID in
RHL 9, and there was something in RHL 8 also, but I don't remember
exactly what it was.  Maybe it's time to fix it or take LVM/RAID
options out of the installer?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Install using LVM.  Create at least one volume group and one volume
inside it.

Actual Results:  Unbootable system (could not find/fsck the logical

Expected Results:  Bootable system.

I had the same problem.

Solution was as follows (at "repair filesystem" stage):

 - modprobe dm-mod
 - echo "mkdmnod" | nash
 - restorecon /dev/mapper/control
 - lvm vgscan
 (this has exited with code 5, why?)

 - lvm vgchange -a y
 - mount -a
 - exit

after the second reboot everything went fine automatically
