On my system I have an encrypted hard disk partition that is the PV for LVM.
Comment 1 Oleg Girko 2008-10-29 21:13:13 EDT
This bug was introduced in mkinitrd-6.0.68-1. It is not present in mkinitrd-6.0.67-1.
Comment 2 Hans de Goede 2008-10-30 04:09:12 EDT
This is most likely fixed in mkinitrd-6.0.69, by this commit:

Can you wait till 6.0.69 becomes available in rawhide, and then test it, or apply that patch to /sbin/mkinitrd manually and then try again please?
Comment 3 Stefan Becker 2008-10-30 04:41:31 EDT
That patch fixes the problem for me. Thanks.
