reassign 409875 libdevmapper1.02
retitle 409875 libdevmapper should provide more helpful error messages

Thanks, this looks mighty suspicious...it looks like /dev/md0 is mounted as your root partition by the initramfs? Please provide me with "ls -al /dev/root" and "cat /proc/cmdline" as well as the contents of your grub or lilo config file.

I am so sorry for stealing yours and other persons time like this. I had
root=/dev/md0 in my menu.lst and / as /dev/hdd6 in my fstab. I have to say I am
strongly embarassed.

No problem, it happends to all of us. There still is a bug here though...the error messages from libdevmapper are obtuse to say the least.

libdevmapper explained that /dev/md0 is in use with the message:
"Command failed: device-mapper: reload ioctl failed: Invalid argument"

That is a bug in my book.

I'll reassign this bug to libdevmapper (and retitle it accordingly).

I'll also CC all people that I've bugged earlier so that they know that this issue is no more.

Thank you a lot for figuring this out and all your patience.

That's ok, you just owe me a beer.
