Re: [K12OSN] Main authentication server down

Hmmm ... seems oriented to LVM2, and this system apparently is using LVM1.  And, all my commands pvscan or whatnot get a "cannot execute binary file" error because of library issues most likely?  system is 64 bit, amd opteron.  It is like I need one magic edit or command and I can get the system up and then go from there.

Caveat emptor. Sounds like you're in a pinch so I'm just throwing this
out there.

The vgremove man page says that should make the LVM consistent, even
in the absence of a disk. Note that it probably will eat the volume
