If anyone has interest in testing the latest verisons of lvm2 & device-mapper for Obarun, I've set up a fork at https://git.obarun.org/nfg/lvm2
. If you're uncomfortable building packages, I've also uploaded locally built packages at https://git.obarun.org/nfg/nfg-builds
only test these updates if you have a sure-fire means of rolling back your system or booting to a live USB and downgrading the packages should something go wrong. I've been running this version for a month now on an 11th-gen intel laptop without issue.
- the lvmetad flag that was used in building previous versions of lvm2 is now fully deprecated, so I'd be interested to know if the update presents any issues for users that commented in this thread
- if the update balks, you may need to move 69-dm-lvm.rules out of /usr/lib/initcpio/udev and then try again
- I've restored some previous functionality, so you should no longer need to include 'dmsetup' and 'lvm' in the BINARIES section of your mkinitcpio.conf, an issue raised most recently here
- The 'lvm2' hook file in /usr/lib/initcpio/hooks should be removed, but
'lvm2' should remain in the HOOKS section of your mkinitcpio.conf
With the same caveat as above, I've set up for testing a fork of grub at https://git.obarun.org/nfg/grub
. And again, if you're uncomfortable building packages, there is a pre-built version of the latest grub at https://git.obarun.org/nfg/nfg-builds
. Since I don't use grub myself, I have not been able to test the build locally.
If there are no negative responses and a few positive ones, we can get these updates merged into obcore soon.
