Re: Problem with LVM on fresh Sarge installation
Maybe your system doesn't have support for LVM compiled in or the initrd
load the proper lvm2 modules? If LVM2 is what you are using off course. Are you using a standard kernel or a self compiled one?
I think there is support for LVM2. I'm using distribution kernel 2.6.8-1-386 installed by debian installer for Sarge.
# strings /boot/initrd.img-2.6.8-1-386 | grep dm-mod
The standard kernel provides LVM2 support so that should be alright.
Since it works when you do it manually, something must be wrong when
the system. When you activate it manually, what does vgdisplay and
lvdisplay show you?
P.S. Also reply to the list so other people can follow this, it might
get your problem
