I'm having an amazing disk problem. My disk has LVM configured. /home
and swap sits on LVM, while / is direct.
USELVM=yes is enabled in /etc/rc.conf and also it is there in
The problem is that, sometimes when I boot, fsck complains that it
wasn't able to find a ext2 superblock, and drops me to a sulogin shell.
Now if I run fsck -vyf /home, it works. Even if fsck isn't run, it
mounts properly using the command mount /home.
Now again when I restart, it will say the same thing or boot properly
(seems like a random choice :D).
At last fed up, I issued the following commands at the sulogin shell:
mount -o remount,rw /
hostname Linux (yeah that's my hostname)
And it worked successfully.
Any ideas about this AMAZING problem ??!?!?
