I'm new here and hello everyone.
I have in my computer (desktop) motherboard with bios sata raid, I need to install on this Windows OS and Linux OS. With Windows I haven't any problems but with linux there are problems...
I try to install PLD system on my PC it is RPM based system.
I boot computer with linux from rescue-cd (arch x86_64), I install module:
(for use raid partitions), next I start dmraid:
i see partitions of my raid, I can mount this and install system on this. I change
and prepare all on "new instaled system" I can
chroot /new_isntalled_system/ /bin/bash
on this and when I need to generate initrd (initial ram disk)
geninitrd -v -f /boot/initrd-126.96.36.199-4 188.8.131.52-4
there is a problem and I don't know solution for this. I have message
LVM doesn't recognize device-mapper node with minor 1
In case your Physical Volumes are device mapper nodes, you should add to lvm.conf:
types = [ "device-mapper", 254 ]
I add and run script to create initrd once more but message is the same. Have You got any sugestions to solve my problem/s?
Maybe have You got any manuals for instalation linux on device mapper? Maybe I need to select other distribution? Which one?
