Description of problem:
After performing the first up2date after a fresh Fedora Core 3
installation, new kernel cannot find Volume /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00!!!
Kernel panics immediately of course.
Reseting the machine and using grub to revert to kernel-2.6.9-1.667
solves the problem.
Please advise workaround for this apparent problem of "no Volume Group
(lvm2) recognition" by the latest kernel (kernel-2.6.9-1.678_FC3).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load fresh Fedora Core 3 using default auto layout (lvm2)
2. Boot new Fedora 3 kernel
3. Run up2date to get latest updates and kernel
4. Attempting to boot from kernel-2.6.9-1.678_FC3 kernel will fail
since no volume groups can be found.
Actual Results: Kernel panics since no volume groups can be found.
Expected Results: Boot latest kernel with no problems.
Testing on an Athlon XP 1600 Shuttle PC (model K43011011GA3TH0) with
512MB RAM and two Samsung 120GB SATA drives, TDK CDRW 5201B.
Don't update to kernel-2.6.9-1.678_FC3 kernel!!!
