Error after installation

Postby Razor12 » Thu Oct 07, 2010 11:12

Code: Select all
Block device /dev/mapper/vg_sabayon-lv_root is not a valid root device
Could not find the root block device in

What does it means? And how to fix it? :)

That has something to do with lvm. If you can get to the rescue shell at boot post your results of the following three commands:

Code: Select all
lvm pvscan
lvm vgscan
lvm lvmdiskscan

Try this:
Code: Select all
rc-update show | grep lvm
rc-update del lvm boot

If you did not let the installer automatically partition and it still boots to a desktop after installation
