Fails to resume from disk, and fails to mount root if resume= line is present
Last modified: 2013-01-10 02:49:57 EST
Description of problem:
If a resume= parameter is added to the kernel command line, dracut does not trigger a resume from disk. Further, it then fails to mount the root filesystem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Add an entry like resume=/dev/mapper/vg_hostname-lv_swap to the kernel commandline and attempt to resume or boot.
Machine fails to resume. Machine also fails to boot.
Machine resumes. If machine fails to resume, machine should attempt to boot.
Booting to rdshell shows that lv_root is active but all other lvs are inactive. Running lvm vgchange -ay vg_hostname results in the machine resuming.
lvchange, not vgchange.

the you also have to add rd_LVM_LV=vg_hostname/lv_swap ... or remove all rd_LVM_* parameters
anaconda should add that to the kernel command line.
