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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Build standard FC4 server system with auto-partitioning.
2. Boot system.
3. Watch boot messages.
This is just a warning message that can be ignored, but it would be nice not to see it at all.
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.
I believe that error message got suppressed.
