[Bug 1581761] Re: Kernel panic - not syncing - Attempted to kill init
Looking at the stack trace, this could be an lvm bug. I'll add that bug
** Also affects: lvm (Ubuntu)

Kernel panic - not syncing - Attempted to kill init
Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
Status in lvm package in Ubuntu:
Suddenly I can't boot as I receive 'kernel panic - not syncing - Attempted to kill init'. I tried to use previous kernel, then reinstall kernels but all that didn't help me. I have luks encrypted partition which contains multiple lvm with ext4 volumes. This was working since 14.04 was released so this not standard configuration should not cause this issue.
I am able to run live cd, then decrypt luks partition and mount volumes and chroot. All seems to be ok. I fsck lvm and all is ok.
I found similar issue https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/cryptsetup/+bug/1273261 which suggest to try udev_settle. This didn't helped. I even entered sleep 5 (thus "sleeping for 5 secs" message on the stacktrace in the middle) but this didn't solve the issue. Maybe I enter this hack too early in the script?
No more idea... so mayday, mayday...
I attached photo of the stacktrace and report of 'apport-cli linux-generic'.
