Recently I have been using LVM2 volumes on raid devices and have discovered a recent change in /etc/init.d/checkfs system script is causing my logical volumes to be marked inactive.
On further investigation the reason for this behaviour was due to the logical volume activation section being above the raid section.
FIX: Move LVM section below RAID section in /etc/init.d/checkfs
Created attachment 31560 [details]
example checkfs file.
my current /etc/init.d/checkfs script with modifications.
This is a pretty trivial fix. Why has this fix not been included in gentoo?
It works for me with the unmodified checkfs, however I have the raid code compiled in to the kernel directly and am using the auto-raid-detection option.
it appears that the issue has been resolved in version baselayout-1.11.8 although the original (baselayout-1.9.4-r6.ebuild) has not been amended.
