Any change to activate a driverupdate before mounting the install source? I guess if I have to get all that into the initrd, it becomes complicated (all libraries needed for lvm tools etc., hacking the init script... :-()
I tried to put the driverupdate on a floppy and use driverupdate=1 on the boot prompt. My driverupdate file contains a file /linux/suse/i386-sles10/install/update.tar.gz which is just a tar.gz of all files and directories in the lvm2.rpm, plus a update.pre script, calling vgscan and vgchange.
The driverupdate is indeed loaded from the floppy, but it doesn't unpack the update.tar.gz (I don't see any of the files when using the prompt at ALT+F9), nor does it execute the pre script.
At console 3 I see sth. like
Loading image /mounts/update/driverupdate dud 0: file:/linux/suse/i386-sles10 /download/image0 removed dud 0: Ok, that seems to have worked :-) Looking for a SuSE Linux Enterpriese Server 0 hard disk...
and then it fails to mount /dev/mapper/....
Should it work like that, i.e., untar the update.tar.gz and execute the update.pre script *before* mounting the install source? Then I might just have sth. wrong in my driverupdate.
Or can't it work like that?
