Description David Carrigan 2004-04-08 19:12:45 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6)
Gecko/20040312 Epiphany/1.1.12

Description of problem:
/sbin/lvm in this RPM is linked dynamically to three(3) libraries
under /usr/lib (libreadline.so.4, libncurses.so.5, and libgpm.so.1).

At boot, /sbin/lvm is called from /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit at line 378,
but /usr--if a separate partition--is not mounted/available until
line 605 of same.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot a system with /usr as separate from / filesystem
2. Error: /sbin/lvm: libreadline.so.4 not found 
3. Enter root passwd at sulogin prompt
4. `e2fsck -y /dev/<where /usr is>; mount /dev/</usr> /usr'
5. run /sbin/lvm --mknodes[...] as "usual."

Actual Results:  System works OK after steps 3. - 5., but on reboot, we're
back in the same mess

Expected Results:  Simply boot the system as before the "upgrade" to

Additional info:

Will roll back to other lvm2 version, until this is fixed

rc.sysinit should be using lvm.static not lvm.

Additional patch
Comment 6 Alasdair Kergon 2004-04-14 09:27:36 EDT
2 patches to rc.sysinit attached to fix the init script to use the
static version of the binary instead of the dynamically-linked one.
Comment 7 Alasdair Kergon 2004-04-15 07:34:58 EDT
2.00.12 released which moves the non-static binaries to /usr/sbin and
has a temporary workaround (extra symlinks in /sbin) until initscripts
gets updated with the attached patches.
Comment 8 Bill Nottingham 2004-05-03 17:19:12 EDT
This is fixed in 7.50-1.
