Description Bill Nottingham 2002-07-14 23:06:39 EDT
Couldn't it just check for the presence of the lvm tools before putting them on
the initrd? Presumably no one's going to have LVM without having the tools
Comment 1 Erik Troan 2002-07-16 12:26:36 EDT
Fine with me -- Jeremy did this though so I'll leave it to him to undo it.
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2002-07-16 12:33:47 EDT
Except that if you don't have the requires, then you don't necessarily have the
LVM tools installed when the kernel is installed.  Thus, you have root on lvm,
no lvm tools yet, initrd created by kernel install doesn't have lvm in it.  Oops :(
