LVM based partition scheme (using Thin Volume) fails during installation
This document (7016660) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
With default PReP partition (8MB) installation can fail with following error: WARNING: no dependencies for kernel module 'linear' found. Kernel Modules: dm-mod mbcache jbd ext3 Features: dm block lvm2 33710 blocks Perl-Bootloader: 2015-03-11 11:35:06 <3> pbl-1011.2 Core::RunCommand.1614: Error: '/sbin/lilo' failed with exit code 1, output: <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< running on chrp /dev/sda /dev/sda1 Boot target is /dev/sda1 add note section for RS6K MKDOSFS options: -s 1 -F 16 -n 'lv_root' ERROR: Boot partition '/dev/sda1' cannot hold 49324 blocks >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> There was an error generating the initrd (1)
With LVM based partition scheme using thin volume, ensure PReP partition size is at least 200MB. A bigger PReP partition is required so that it can carry kernel and initrd files.
