Does knoppix have an older lvm version that doesn't recognize your
metadata? I *hope* it doesn't have lvm1, which used binary metadata....
If you see the human readable metadata, and knoppix doesn't, then there
is a problem with knoppix. Either ancient lvm, or the device filtered
out for vgscan in lvm.conf.
