Description Alexander Todorov 2010-05-05 12:25:32 UTC
Description of problem:

man dracut describes two different options with the same text:
       rd_LVM_VG=<volume group name>
              only activate the volume groups with the given name rd_LVM_VG can be specified multiple times on the kernel command line.

       rd_LVM_LV=<logical volume name>
              only activate the volume groups with the given name rd_LVM_LV can be specified multiple times on the kernel command line.


I believe the rd_LVM_LV description should read "logical volues" instead of "volume groups"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
git master from today

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man dracut
 
Actual results:
The descriptions of rd_LVM_VG and rd_LVM_LV are the same

Expected results:
The descriptions of rd_LVM_VG and rd_LVM_LV are different because those are two different options.

Additional info:
This patch fixes it for me.
