This is pretty similar to what happened to me recently.  Hopefully someone
will take the time to help one, or both, of us out.  In the interim can you
do at least a "uname -r" to get your major kernel version and a "lvm" then
"version" within the lvm program to get the LVM version numbers, this can
assist people helping you.
