root on lvm2 problem :-(

I was following this guide in order to set up a pure lvm2 system [HOWTO] lvm2 for root, swap and software suspend2 (edit) at this link The initrd works out fine and boots the kernel up to the point where is trying to mount stuff and I get this message:


BIT FAT WARNING!! Failed to translate "/dev/kewl/swap" into a device id.

vFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem) readonly
Freeind unused kernel memory: 228k feed
initrd: Mounting /proc

*** Entering LVM2 rescue shell. Exit shell to continue. ***
And also because inserting swap into lvm I cannot set swap signature with fdisk, but swap is created regardless like this:


mkswap /dev/kewl/swap
Setting up swapspace version 1, size = 511700 kB
no label, UUID=(long number)
I am running Gentoo by the way. If someone has a clue I would appreciate it greatly :-)
