So, when the system starts logical volume /dev/mapper/fedora-home didn't exists, but command 'lvdisplay' displayed home volume. After a error I logged as root and used 'vgchange -ay', which reread lvs and fedora-home appears available. What it can be?


/dev/mapper/fedora-root /                       ext4    defaults        1 1
UUID=8f6ba071-ba06-4a9a-b25d-08824ed618ab /boot                   ext4    defaults        1 2
UUID=8CF7-87AF          /boot/efi               vfat    umask=0077,shortname=winnt 0 0
/dev/mapper/fedora-home /home                   ext4    defaults        1 2
/dev/mapper/fedora-swap swap                    swap    defaults        0 0

Does this occurs on each boot ? I sometime encounter this issue, and a reboot solves it. Uggly...

Have a look through /var/log/messages for anything relating to /home, LVM, the device-mapper, etc.

Gareth Jones, /var/log/messages and dmesg didn't show any errors. when booting crash i have: Timed out waiting for device dev-mapper-fedora\x2dhome.device

I solved the problem. I had a snapshot of my /home directory, after removing this snap error disappeared. Thanks to all, who tried to help me.
