Bug#492560: lvm2 should depend on busybox

Just stumbled over this problem.

I also just booted a plain Debian/Lenny (using a minimal FAI-client setup).

The HDD-layout looks like this:

% cat /etc/fstab

/dev/mapper/vg-root       /       ext3    rw,errors=remount-ro    0      1
UUID=494a0679-66ef-428e-aeab-c87ee038d0ed       /boot   ext3    rw      0      2
/dev/mapper/vg-home       /home   ext3    rw,nosuid       0       2
/dev/mapper/vg-tmp        /tmp    ext3    rw      0       2
/dev/mapper/vg-usr        /usr    ext3    rw      0       2
/dev/mapper/vg-var        /var    ext3    rw      0       2
/dev/mapper/vg-swap       none    swap    sw      0       2

% uname -a
Linux faiclient 2.6.26-1-686 #1 SMP Sat Jan 10 18:29:31 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux

Although the system boots fine I got the error messages with the
missing "sed" and "tr" reported by Petter.

Sheridan already mentioned that the missing busybox caused that
issue but I thought it would help to report my simple workaround:

% aptitude install busybox
% update-initramfs -u

Then reboot.

So the solution would be to depend lvm2 on busybox (or tr and sed).
