It was suggested that I update lvm2 from Rawhide, so I did:

   yum --enablerepo=development update lvm2

This updated lvm2 and device-mapper:


However, I still get the same results described by the OP.
Comment 2 John W. Linville 2008-02-20 11:30:02 EST
OK, this seemed to do it:

   yum --enablerepo=development update mkinitrd

Afterwards you'll need to re-run mkinitrd for the 2.6.25 kernels installed (or 
use yum or rpm to uninstall and reinstall them).

Does that resolve things for you?

yes, this Problem is now sloved .. now the kernel oopses as soon as i enter init
5 but this is definitive a different problem and i open a new bug :-)
