i setup arch64 on evms, but when i boot my system i get the following error:
Engine: unable to open the control node for device-mapper. The engine will run without device-mapper support. Engine: unable to open the lock file /var/lock/evms-engine: read-only file system. The engine is not protected against other instances of the engine running at the same time. Engine: Error creating the /dev/evms/.nodes directory: Read-only file system Error returned from evms_open_engine(): Read-only file system /linuxrc: Mounting /dev/ram0 on /sysroot with no extra options mount: mounting /dev/ram0 on /sysroot with no extra options /linuxrc: ERROR: The root volume has not been properly mounted. Starting /linuxrc: ERROR: a shell. Please mount the root volume manually on the /linuxrc: ERROR: /sysroot directory. You can do this with the command: /linuxrc: ERROR: mount -o ro /dev/evms/Your_Root_Volume /sysroot /linuxrc: ERROR: When you exit the shell, I will attempt to continue /linuxrc: ERROR: the boot process.
i can't do what it says because there is no /dev/evms dir. evms_active never created the nodes. any ideas?
i thought a found solution, but it didn't work. /dev/mapper/control was missing so i created it with devmap_mknod.sh on the initrd and on my root fs but still i get the same error. Any ideas?
