Description Patrick McShane 2004-11-19 01:42:19 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)

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):

How reproducible:

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.

Additional info:

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!!!
