I created my lvm partitions using this guide http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/lvm2.xml
Everything went fine and it worked but then when I rebooted with the Live CD /dev/vg was not there. I had to do a "vgchange -a n" and "vgchange -a y" before the nodes would show up. Basically it wasn't automatic during boot like I thought it would be.
Steps to Reproduce:
This should be fixed for 2005.1
We are using genkernel-3.2.0 for this upcoming release. Unmask it to test it
You will also need to add dolvm2 to the kernel cmdline to activate lvm in the
initrd for / on lvm.
I'm going to mark this as FIXED.
If you still have a problem, please feel free to let us know.
I checked 2005.1 and "gentoo dolvm2" does fix the issue :-) ... however it is
not listed as an option in "F2 for options".
There is no 2005.1 released... anything pre-release has its own bug and does not
belong in an old bug...
Anyway, we've removed everything from "F2 for options" and moved it to a README
since it was too big to fit on-screen...
ok :-) closing bug
