Anaconda (mkinitrd?) fails to create initrd for root on LV
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:16 EST
Description of problem:
Anaconda (or mkinitrd?) does not create an initrd image that starts all software
raidsets needed for LVs
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: every time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot i386 FC8T2 DVD
2. specify NOMPATH (have to do to even get anaconda to see all raids and LVs)
3. select create custom partitioning
4. create layout with / on an LV
5. install with default software
6. first boot fails during initrd with / LV not being found
Actual results: 6 above
Expected results: normal install
This bug was presernt with FC7T3 and final, but specifying NOMPATH allowed
workaround. A BZ (237456) was entered, but not resolved since workaround
existed. Tried NODMRAID, but didn't work at all during install LV detection.
I also went to console 2 and manually started all raidsets with mdadm.
Attaching anaconda log from install.

anaconda log from failed install
Were you reusing a pre-existing LV?
Okay, then this is the bug that Chris fixed up yesterday.
