I just installed Aarch from 0.7.2 CD I had. I used LVM2 partitions as every other partitition except boot,swap and root.
Problem is that the system boots with the 'full' initramfs but it won't start up the lvm partitions at all for some reason.
I enabled the LVM during the installation but what else to do to get it to work?

If you don't have root on LVM, you don't need to enable it in initramfs. Just enable USELVM="yes" in /etc/rc.conf. Maybe the cause is the device mapper not being loaded (I think I have to fix this in initscripts), so just add dm_mod to the MODULES=(...) array in /etc/rc.conf.
I did had the USELVM="yes" in rc.conf but I will try to add the dm_mod to MODULES as you said to see if that helps.
Next initscripts release fixes this bug, this means that adding dm-mod to MODULES should no longer be necessary.
Ok, I did reinstall from ftp now that my broadband works again and it did work just fine
Now to re-familirize myself with Arch
