This probably has something to do with it. I have some Maxtor stuff too.

This is a problem. Hmmmm...Try recreating your vol group config by running
"vgcreate" and "lvcreate" from command line. Do not use yast , as this will
call "vgscan" again
Or maybe:
1. mv /sbin/vgscan /sbin/vgscan.BOGUS
2. YasT to recreate VG.
In any case work carefully, since you are in trouble

Also try "vgcfgrestore" , but   assume it is broken too, as it was in my
