Error after installation

Post by 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
