Hi there,

I have successfully installed XEN 3.4.1 on a 64-bit Debian Lenny, created module dependencies, an initrd and updated grub. While booting with the XEN kernel 2.6.18-8 it stops trying to mount the root filesystem with the error, that there is no volume group with the name where the root filesystem resides on. My root is a logical volume.

Any clue on how to solve this? Is this related to the initrd? Because he seems to know what a volume group is, the device mapper stuff is loaded.

Thanks in advance.
