Bug#583622: [lvm2] lvm/dmsetup segfault on startup on powerpc

Package: lvm2
Version: 2.02.64-1
Severity: grave

--- Please enter the report below this line. ---
I have my / swap and /home in lvm on my powerpc iBook (found usually
under /dev/mapper/pomme-{root,swap,home}).

I upgraded lvm2/dmsetup/libdevmapper1.02.1 to current sid versions.
After rebooting, I saw two Segmentation fault errors after device-mapper
ioctl message. After that, I get into busybox. Trying to run some (not
all) lvm related commands such that vgchange -ay yield segfault.

dm-mod is loaded, but /dev/mapper contains only a control file, and
nothing related to the logical volumes pomme-root, pomme-swap or

Reverting to 2.02.62-1 from testing is a workaround for the moment.

Best regards,
