After deactivation I could change the name, but after the reboot the
dm-mapper was still looking for the old volume group 'system'. I tried to
boot the rescue system, maybe the inittab needed a refresh - but that did
not work.
unfortunately Suse's system repair cant deal with LVM, so my best idea was
to  change everything back.
