SubjectBoot hangs on IBM T60
Hi, all

It happens very rarely that the system hangs while

The last message on console is :

Activating device mapper..

I dont' get any oops and the system works without any
problem if it boots. :)

uname -a gives #1 SMP Fri Jun 22 12:17:53 UTC
2007 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Let me know if you need more information, with the
steps to generate that info. :)

I am pasting a few lines which fall above and below
the mapper activation as shown by dmesg for a
successful boot.
