Subject: live-initramfs: When I enable persistence it fails remounting /cow
Date: Sun, 21 Dec 2008 19:52:21 +0100
Package: live-initramfs
Version: 1.139.1-3
Severity: important

I have a compactflash based ide drive with two partitions (hdc1, hdc2). 
On hdc1 I have put a custom built debian live testing using squashfs. 
I have planned to use /dev/hdc2 (ext3) as persistent store.

I have tried two way: labelling hdc2 with live-rw or putting a live-rw file inside /dev/hdc2.
Either way the boot stops and appears a message that suggests me to file a bug to live-initramfs.

The error is:

Remounting /dev/hdc2 ro on /cow /home-rw-backing failed

I can see from the shell that /dev/hdc2 is already mounted rw,errors=continue,data=ordered on /cow AND on 
/home-rw-backing.

Thanks in advance for interest.
