[SOLVED] Fail to boot after filesystem upgrade with LVM

I followed the steps here:
https://www.archlinux.org/news/binaries … ervention/

Nevertheless, after a reboot the system didn't boot up because it was not able to mount logical volumes other than / (i.e. /home and /var). This is because now (for a reason I don't know) /dev/mapper/ entries for my logical volumes are missing.

I can workaround boot waiting 90 seconds for the recovery console to appear, giving my root password and typing this:

dmsetup mknodes # create nodes in /dev/mapper
mount -a # mount all entries in fstab
systemctl start multi-user.target # complete boot with graphical environment

Of course, this is painful. I want my system to boot just as fine as it did this morning before the upgrade. Ideas?

You're probably missing dmsetup in your initramfs. You should figure out why.

To confirm, you can use lsinitcpio.

How can I check that?

My `/etc/mkinitcpio.conf` does not contain the word 'dmsetup' nor the ArchLinux wiki told me anything about it there. I have the 'lvm2' hook, though.

`lsinitcpio /boot/initramfs-linux.img |grep dmsetup` returns empty.

Just rebuilding the initramfs fixed the issue.

mkinitcpio -p linux
