Description Jan Pazdziora 2007-02-26 12:36:22 UTC
Description of problem: When root on LV is defined using LABEL= in /etc/fstab, lvm is not added to initrd unpon kernel install. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): mkinitrd-188.8.131.52-1 (the latest in webqa's RHEL 5 channel) How reproducible: Deterministic. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Have root on LV (let's say /dev/vg0/root) 2. Tune2fs -L it to give it label hostroot. 3. Set / in /etc/fstab to be LABEL=hostroot, instead of /dev/vg0/root. 4. Install kernel (rpm -i kernel-2.6.18-9.el5.i686.rpm) 5. Check the content of the initrd: gunzip -c < /boot/initrd-2.6.18-9.el5.img | cpio -t Actual results: Observe that /etc/lvm/* and /bin/lvm are missing. Upon the reboot, the root fill not be found. Expected results: /etc/lvm/* and /bin/lvm should be present, no error upon the next reboot. Additional info: I've seen plenty of reports similar to this problem for FC6, however, none for RHEL 5. I was surprised that mkinitrd in RHEL 5 Gold has the problem, hence this bug report.

As the bug is present in RHEL 5 as well, I'm changing the Product to reflect that.
