problem with kernel 2.6.6 and LVM - where to switch off automount /dev ?

hi all,

I can't still boot with 2.6.6 and reason is the LVM (even if is compiled into kernel)

I have read that this helps , but I don't know where set it:

I finally found the problem: one has to switch off
the "automount /dev" option!

Hope other people find this helpfull too.

Where I have to switch off the "automount /dev" option ? (kernel option, fstab ...??)

many thanks

/etc/fstab is read by init to mount filesystems... Try adding 'noauto' to the fstab line for devfs. It probably reads 'defaults' change it to 'defaults,noauto', save and reboot.


[Thats for turning off automount for /dev, about the LVM, I have no idea!]

If you use a devfs kernel you can turn off automounting by passing an option to the kernel at boot-time, even if "Mount automatically on boot" is enabled in your kernel config. Append devfs=nomount on the kernel line in your grub.conf or on the append= line in lilo.conf.
