The other thing I thought of doing is sending the output of
vgcreate -vd main_vg /dev/hda2
but first I would need to delete the main_vg that is already there, but I
can't because of the error:
# vgremove main_vg
vgremove -- ERROR: can't remove active volume group "main_vg"
I can't even display info:
vgdisplay -- "/etc/lvmtab.d/main_vg" doesn't exist
vgdisplay -- volume group "main_vg" not found
Any help on this would be most appreciated. Even just to get rid of
main_vg so I can try again!
