    Hi David

    Do you know if your patch [1] you posted to #401916 is going to make
    it into etch? A few users have been asking about whether it is
    possible to use an LVM root partition with an external USB drive on
    the Linksys/NSLU2. I haven't tested your patch on the NSLU2, but I do
    know that adding a delay before the call to vgchange in
    /scripts/local-top/lvm in the initramfs allows the NSLU2 to use an LVM
    root partition on a USB disk.

    It is not critical because there are other issues with LVM on the
    NSLU2, such as the installer runs out of memory when setting up the
    LVM partitions, and one needs to recompile the second stage boot
    loader to add the rootdelay parameter to the kernel command line.

    That patch really belongs to #414842 since it is a change to udev's scripts.

    I do expect that a version of udev which fixes #414842 will make it into
    Etch since #414842 is RC and the release managers seemed to agree when I
    asked them. I'm not a DD so I can't take responsibility for NMU'ing udev
    myself.

    And for anyone following these bug reports: the rootdelay parameter is
    more of a bandaid for #401916 (thus allowing its severity to be
    downgraded) but it's the best we can do so shortly before release, maks
    and I have been discussing some better solutions to implement post-Etch.
