NetBSD 9.0_RC1 NetBSD 9.0_RC1 (GENERIC) #0: Wed Nov 27 16:14:52 UTC 2019 mkrepro%mkrepro.NetBSD.org@localhost:/usr/src/sys/arch/amd64/compile/GENERIC amd64
It appears that the install media does not have all the required drivers to support LVM on amd64.
lvcreate fails with:
File descriptor 12 () leaked on lvm invocation. Parent PID 12:
Failure to communicate with kernel device-mapper driver.
striped: Required device-mapper target(s) not detected in your kernel
Run 'lvcreate --help' for more information.
This has been an ongoing problem since NetBSD 8.0_RC*
I tried to submit a PR for it; but I miserably failed to do so "^/
I view this idea of NetBSD install media containing all the minimums to be "emergency boot media" in the event of FAIL a important tool to have in one's back pocket.
I cannot tell you how many times over the years it has saved me.
I can remember a time when ccd and RAIDframe was not on the install media as well.
I believe LVM meets that bar...
Boot a system with 2 hard disks with the amd64 NetBSD 9.0_RC1 media
Drop out of the installer to the shell and do this:
gpt create wd0
gpt add -t raid -b 64 wd0
gpt create wd1
gpt add -t raid -b 64 wd1
cat > /tmp/x
1 2 0
START layout 63 1 1 1
raidctl -C /tmp/x raid0
raidctl -I 202012170 raid0
raidctl -i raid0
raidctl -A yes raid0
lvm pvcreate /dev/rraid0d
lvm vgcreate -s 4m vg0 /dev/rraid0d
lvm lvcreate --name foo -L 10m vg0
I'm not as in the know as I was with NetBSD once upon a time, but perhaps ensuring that kernel contains the driver or it is shipped on the media since we are no longer using floppies?
For a comparable, the 7.0_RC* amd64 install media did not have this issue...
