Description Axel Thimm 2005-07-21 16:44:35 UTC
Description of problem:
or making use of clvmd one needs to change lvm.conf to include

    locking_type = 2
    locking_library = "/usr/lib64/"

kernels installed later will mkinitrd with this config file which will make the
kernel panic.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.See above
Actual results:
kernel panic on reboot

Expected results:

Additional info:
lvm in initrd is statically linked but the cluster locking mechanisms are
dynamically loaded even so. The initrd should contain a different version of
lvm.conf than the filesystem.

Comment 1 Axel Thimm 2005-07-22 13:18:03 UTC
The initrd was broken due to bad udev/qla2300 interaction, sorry for the noise ...
