Bug#287047: debian-installer: LVM, hangs while populating /dev if no disk in the 2nd CDROM drive
I've tested the netinst image got on 20041220 for i386 and installed a lvm based
I've 2 CDROM drives: /dev/hdc which is a burner with the D-I CD mounted in and
/dev/hdd which is a CDROM reader.
If there is no disk in /dev/hdd then the installer enters a endless loop
probing the CDROM (led blinking). I had to put a disk in the drive to have the
process to complete (successfully).
In /etc/lvm/lvm/conf there is a filter on /dev/cdrom:
# Exclude the cdrom drive
filter = [ "r|/dev/cdrom|" ]
I think a filter on the second drive should sove this problem.
