Partitions under LVM Volume Group won't mount after install
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):
What can I do? Can this really be a hardware problem since it always fails at the same place?
What error messages do you get?
Re: Partitions under LVM Volume Group won't mount after install
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
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/vg00/tmp /tmp notail 1 2
/dev/vg00/usr /usr notail 1 2
/dev/vg00 does not exist!
File descriptor 21 left open
PV /dev/md2 VG vg00 lvm [97.88GB / 52.95 GB free]
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.
