     You can build a NetBSD kernel on any POSIX system (including
Windows).  See here for instructions: .  You will
need to add the line "pseudo-device       dm" to kernel config file

} obviously if have other way of LVM module be loaded earlier root mount
} instead of recompile kernel will be great!

     Adding the device to the kernel won't solve the problem of
needing to do a "vgchange -a y".  You can try building a custom
kernel, but I won't guarantee that it will be able to find the root
