Could be problem that it is SATA disc? And maybe it is not activated before look for LVM Volume Groups? But I don't know how can I find out it is truth. Or how can I correct it.

Hi!

Maybe I told about my problem too complicated:

When I start computer and add this line to /etc/fstab:

-----------------
/dev/mapper/SYSTEM-HOME /opt            ext3    defaults        0       2
-----------------

I can execute:

-----------------
# /etc/init.d/lvm start
# mount /opt/
-----------------

But after computer reboot, boot process fails and write me:

-----------------
...
Creating device-mapper devices... Done.
Setting up LVM Volume Groups...
 Reading all physical volumes. This may také a while.
 No volume groups found
 No volume groups found
 No volume groups found
Checkin all files systems...
Fsck 1.35 (28-Feb-2004)
/boot: clean
fsck.ext3: No such file or directory while trying to open
/dev/mapper/SYSTEM-HOME

The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2 filesystem.  If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2 filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock:
  e2fsck -b 8193 <device>

(write root password or Ctrl+D for exit): -----------------


Any idea how can I repair it?

Thank you very much.
Jura


Maybe your system doesn't have support for LVM compiled in or the initrd doesn't
load the proper lvm2 modules? If LVM2 is what you are using off course. Are you using a standard kernel or a self compiled one?

I think there is support for LVM2. I'm using distribution kernel 2.6.8-1-386 installed by debian installer for Sarge.
---------------
# strings /boot/initrd.img-2.6.8-1-386 | grep dm-mod
dm-mod.ko
---------------

Best regards,
Jura

Maybe. Are your other partitions on the sata disk also or on another disk?
