Description Karyl Stein 2005-12-06 10:42:48 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051111 Firefox/1.5

Description of problem:
During boot of a standard server install of FC4, the following message is shown:

Setting up Logical Volume Management: /var/lock mkdir failed, read-only

This does not cause any operational problems, but it would be nice to /dev/null that message so people don't think that there is an issue.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Build standard FC4 server system with auto-partitioning.
2. Boot system.
3. Watch boot messages.

Additional info:

This is just a warning message that can be ignored, but it would be nice not to see it at all.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2005-12-06 11:46:36 EST
The line in question is:

            action $"Setting up Logical Volume Management:" /sbin/lvm.static
vgchange -a y --ignorelockingfailure

So, lvm shouldn't be erroring here, I think.
Comment 2 Alasdair Kergon 2007-01-10 13:02:22 EST
I believe that error message got suppressed.
