Description of problem:
When booting, the initrd runs, and prints out these messages:
Reading all physical volumes. This may take a while...
cdrom: open failed
Found volume group "vg0" using metadata type lvm2.
1 logical volume(s) in volume group "vg0" now active
label SWAP-sda6 not found
Unable to access resume device (LABEL=SWAP-sda6)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot kernel
Notes: Installed fc5test1 from CDs. It installed the SMP kernel. I then did a "yum install kernel" to get the non-SMP kernel, and am booting that.
Looking at the initrd, there's a line in the /init script that says:
I assume that's where the problem comes from
Actual Results: An error message is displayed about not being able to find the label.
Expected Results: Error message shouldn't be printed
FYI, no functionality appears to be lost for me (although I haven't tried suspend/resume - I assume that's broken)
I can do this once booted:
so I know the label is there. Also, a "dd|od -a" on the partition shows the label text.
The system is a Dell 9300. It has a SATA HDD (and ATA DVD drive). To install, I shrunk the NTFS partition they installed, and put all the Linux partitions into an extended partition:
[root@esk initrd]# sfdisk -uS -l /dev/sda
Disk /dev/sda: 12161 cylinders, 255 heads, 63 sectors/track
Units = sectors of 512 bytes, counting from 0

Oops. The line in /init on the initrd really says this:
This seems to be fixed with the latest devel updates - I don't see the error
message any more.
