I like to change the size of one of my logical volumes but the volume
group device is missing:

[root]# vgscan
  Reading all physical volumes.  This may take a while...
  Found volume group "vg01" using metadata type lvm2
[root]# lvscan
  ACTIVE            '/dev/vg01/slow' [242.77 GB] inherit
  ACTIVE            '/dev/vg01/usr' [3.91 GB] inherit
  ACTIVE            '/dev/vg01/home' [5.86 GB] inherit
  ACTIVE            '/dev/vg01/tmp' [1000.00 MB] inherit


[root]# ls -l /dev/vg*
ls: /dev/vg*: No such file or directory

I am running Mandrake 10.1:

[root]# uname -a
Linux xxx.xxx.xxx #1 Wed Sep 8 17:00:52 CEST 2004 i686
Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.40GHz unknown GNU/Linux

Any hints what to do?
