Default An amazing disk problem !


I'm having an amazing disk problem. My disk has LVM configured. /home
and swap sits on LVM, while / is direct.

USELVM=yes is enabled in /etc/rc.conf and also it is there in

The problem is that, sometimes when I boot, fsck complains that it
wasn't able to find a ext2 superblock, and drops me to a sulogin shell.
Now if I run fsck -vyf /home, it works. Even if fsck isn't run, it
mounts properly using the command mount /home.

Now again when I restart, it will say the same thing or boot properly
(seems like a random choice ).

At last fed up, I issued the following commands at the sulogin shell:

mount -o remount,rw /
hostname Linux (yeah that's my hostname)
mount /home
init 5

And it worked successfully.

Any ideas about this AMAZING problem ??!?!?
