Thank you for moving this thread and your recommendations, @hcvv. To find the cause of the error messages, let me clarify: I can normally boot into my system and do not experience any issues. It’s just mentioned messages that bother me during startup, right before being asked for the password to decrypt my LVM volume.
I’m not using Tumbleweed. I get these messages with basic 13.1, too. They started with an “lvm2” update.
I am treating them as hard-wired unavoidable messages that can be safely ignored.
I get those messages on every computer where I use an encrypted LVM with opensuse 13.1. On one computer, I have an sd-card reader for several different kinds of card. I get 4 of those messages for each of the supported sd-card types, even though no card is plugged in.
I’m pretty sure that it is quite safe to ignore these messages if there are no related problems. So it’s just a noisy boot screen, but otherwise no big deal.
Well, “System” seems to be your only VG. And as your system just functions, I agree with nrickert that it is just something to forget. I do not know why it gives you a bad feeling. Do you realy undrstand all the messages that scroll past during booting in a way that you are very happy with all of them except this one?
But when you want to take action, you can file a bug at http://en.opensuse.org/Submitting_Bug_Reports (same username/password as here). You have evidence and documentation about it enough now (report it against 13.1, not Tumbleweed and don not forget the LVM version).
You could post the bug nummer here, thus everybody coming here through a search could then add info to the bug report if needed.
Great suggestion, but currently I am having a huge problem with my mail provider as I have no access to my mail address and cannot access my account, nor delete my mailing address. Would you please do me a favour and file mentioned things as a bug in their bugtracker? I owe you a huge beer then. THANK YOU!
