Description pavlidis 2005-02-21 14:48:52 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7)

Description of problem:
I installed FC3 and all updates on a system with nforce2 chipset and 2
(two) disk 80GB each. I used LVM and created a logical volume of 100
GB. Later I add two (2) disks of 200GB each, one PATA and one SATA.
The motherboard is an MSI W6570 which has an extra promise controller
for SATA. I disabled raid, and used it as SATA controller only. I
added the space to the VG and resize the filesystem correctly. So far
so good.
All these have been done without any trickery to services etc of the
the  verbatim FC3 system. 
Then I decided to use only level 3. Upon reboot the VG and the logical
volume with the /home filesystem vanished. Re-enabling level 5 and
reboot and all is ok. Also the same happens if I remove the rhgb
option on the boot in the grub.
What is the neccessary module that makes the lvm work in level 5 and
not in level 3? 
I have already checked and have the same services run in both
runlevels. So something else must be the culprit.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set runlevel=3 or remove rhgb from boot line

Actual Results:  The system does not boot. It enter either in
maintenance mode or reboot.

Expected Results:  the system should boot mounting correctly the lvm
either in runlevel=3 or 5.
