lvm2 2.02.98-3, we now utilize
lvmetad to activate LVM volumes automatically. This implies the following changes:
lvm2initramfs hook now requires the
use_lvmetad = 1must be set in
/etc/lvm/lvm.conf. This is the default now - if you have a
lvm.conf.pacnewfile, you must merge this change.
- You can restrict the volumes that are activated automatically by setting the
/etc/lvm/lvm.conf. If in doubt, leave this option commented out.
- If you need monitoring (needed for snapshots), run
systemctl enable lvm-monitoring.service.
lvmwaitkernel command line option is no longer needed and has no effect.
If you run
pacman -Syu and update
lvm2 at the same time, you will get an error message that
/sbin/dmsetup is missing. Run
mkinitcpio -p linux again after the update to avoid any problems.
