Description Egon Kastelijn 2007-07-12 04:15:08 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv: Gecko/20070603 Fedora/ Firefox/

Description of problem:
When an lvm snapshot is created of the root filesystem and this snapshot gets full, then the machine hangs with a kernel panic at boot time.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
lvm-2.02.24-1.fc7  kernel-2.6.21-1.3228.fc7

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. lvcreate -s -n fglrx_test -L 100M /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
2. <use the machine until the shapshot is full>
3. reboot

Actual Results:
Kernel panic:
Reading all physical volumes. This may take a while...
device-mapper: table: 253:3: snapshot: Failed to read shapshot metadata
device-mapper: reload ioctl failed: Invalid argument
mount: could not find filesystem '/dev/root'
setuproot: moving /dev failed: No such file or directory
setuproot: error mounting /proc: No such file or directory
setuproot: mount failed: No such file or directory
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

Expected Results:
A normal boot
