my lvm (2 partitions on 2 discs /dev/hde4 /devhdg2) on a Debian Woody
Linux (2.4.18-686) shows some strange behaviour:
After rebooting my computer, vgscan found an inactive "vg01" to be my
volume group but vgchange -a y said:
vgchange -- ERROR: can't get name(s) of physical volumes
vgchange -- Please check, if /proc is mounted
my /proc is mounted and in /proc/lvm /global is says:
Total: 0 VGs 0 PVs 0 LVs (LVs open)
Global: 152 bytes malloced IOP version 10 0:05:06 active
I do _not_ use devfs, /dev is complete and working.
My lvm are just my home dirs, so uncomming them in /etc/fstabs and
rebooting brings my system up with kde now problem and root can log in
and work (which it shouldnt do with kde, just testing).
My / is on /dev/hde3, so it isnt a disc failure.
the output of
vgchange -a y -d
What can I do to get my LVM up running _without_ dataloss?
