Bug#611493: Failure on boot during initrd script execution
616689 is probably part of the problem. In my case, LVM runs on top of a
raid0. Sometimes, the kernel freezes several minutes after an apparently
normal boot. I have tried to improve the situation with the rootdelay
and also timeout from grub. The rootdelay parameter helped, but the
problem re-happened, unfortunately. I wonder if there is not some
interference with grub.
As I am running two different systems (Mint not Window$ !) on the same
computer, I could notice that:
- the problem is less likely to happen if I reboot (the machine is warm)
- the problem does not happen with Mint, kernel 2.6.24-28-generic, with
boot&root partition is a native partition and home is on a raid1/LVM
I am sorry, but I do not know how I could be more helpful.
