Bug#720162: debian-installer: Installed system is unbootable due to missing LVM support
I have installed testing from an ISO image I downloaded about 3 or 4
days ago. During installation, I decided for manual partitioning. I
set up LVM volumes in an encrypted LVM group.
After the installation has finished 'successfully', the installed
system is unbootable. After a short timeout, it reported "Gave up
waiting for root device".
I have figured out that, although I prepared LVM groups/volumes in the
installer, the installed system was missing the lvm2 package. After
booting a rescue system I was able to install lvm2 on the new system
and after that it booted fine.
