Bug#690246: debian-installer: initial install reboot failure to find lvm devices when hostname has a - in it
Standard debian 6 install, hostname has a dash in it, ie this-name. The lvm volume group then uses this-name
for the volume group name. Install goes fine, but on reboot it dumps into initram shell saying it can't
find root /dev/mapper/this-name-root. Not sure where the 2nd dash came from. lvm lvscan shows the volumes
as inactive. lvchange -a y this-name/root activates the volume and creates /dev/mapper/this--name-root.
System still won't boot 'cause it's confused about the mapper device name.
