Bug#402931: initramfs-tools does not support redhat lvm naming schema
I have to run Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4 (Nahant Update 4) on
a customer project. This is, as far as I know, the newest stable Red Hat
The most important command on this system is "chroot /debian".
The redhat system was installed with as many default values as possible
(also lvm configuration).
Because I want to be able, to also boot debian directly, I used the
patch described below.
Here is the requested symlink info:
ls -l /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 31 Dec 15 00:44 /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 ->
ls -l /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 253, 0 Dec 15 01:43
If this is a to specific change request, do you see a possiblity to have
a config file, with additional LVM naming schemas?
