Partitions under LVM Volume Group won't mount after install


Hi!

I've had some problems installating Mandriva 2006.0 on a system with:

ASUS P4C800 Deluxe
2 x 120GB SATA disks

The install procedure goes without any problems (partitioning, package selection etc). However, on the first startup/reboot after installation mounting LVM volume group always fail! There are no problems mounting the RAID.

My setup is:

2 x 120GB SATA disks

md0: /boot 256MB (ReiserFS)
md1: / ~15GB (ReiserFs)
md2: LVM vg00 ~100GB

vg00 (all partitions ReiserFS):
10GB /tmp
20GB /usr
10GB /var
5GB /var/www
2GB /swap

What can I do? Can this really be a hardware problem since it always fails at the same place?

/J

It can't mount the different partitions under LVM vg00. No complaints about the RAIDs.

FYI, I have the exact same setup on my laptop.

What's in your /etc/fstab? What error messages do you get when you try to point these LVM partitions manually with something like
Code:
mount /tmp
?

Sorry for the delay in answer. I still appreciate any help.

Just tried a clean install for X th time (X is too high) and end up with the same problem. All RAID devices are setup correctly, but I get the following error message during boot up:

"Failed to open the device '/dev/vg00/tmp': No such file or directory"

This messages shows for all my volume groups under vg00 except for swap ( tmp, usr, var and var-ww).

/etc/fstab (except for the RAID devices my fstab looks just like the one on my laptop):
/dev/md1 / reiserfs notail 1 1
/dev/md0 /boot
/dev/vg00/tmp /tmp notail 1 2
/dev/vg00/usr /usr notail 1 2
...

/dev/vg00 does not exist!

pvscan shows:

File descriptor 21 left open
PV /dev/md2 VG vg00 lvm [97.88GB / 52.95 GB free]

vgscan hangs!

What can I do? This has been keeping be from installing Mandriva 2006.0 for weeks now.
Did not have this problem when I installed Mandrake 10.0 - should I try to install Mandrake 10.0 and then upgrade?
I have asked for help on this issue at Mandriva Club Forums and also reported is as a bug: http://qa.mandriva.com/show_bug.cgi?id=19768
As a matter of fact there seem to be similar bug reports, see the links in my bug report (linked above).

I'll gladly give more information upon request.
