like a number of people, I am being coherced to move to an initramfs.
I am using ~x86_64, openrc-0.9.9.3, udev-182-r3, dracut-018.
At the reboot, dracut awakens LVM, mounts /usr (R/W?), which is in LVM, and then steps down.
Then after a while it's the turn of 'fsck' service, which finds /usr mounted R/W and becomes VERY nervous.
And interrupts the booting process.
I am working around this by adding options "-p -M -T -C0" (key is "-M") in /etc/conf.d/fsck, but I feel something is wrong, this should not be needed.
What have I missed?
kernel: gentoo-tuxonice 3.0.22
* USE flags: device-mapper net
* MODULES: biosdevname caps lvm ssh-cluent syslog
* command line: dracut ImagePath 3.0.22-tuxonice
Another nice question is why udev has decided that eth0 is now em1 and wlan0 is sit1 (and how: I don't know udev).
But that's for another post.
Thank you for the attention
