I thought running it in the current situation would be enough.

For some reason I am not getting my own emails though. Basically I am 
not getting list emails, only direct replies atm.

So I will CC myself I guess.

   Found duplicate PV 3U9ac3Ah5lcZUf03Iwm0cgMMaKxdflg0: using /dev/sdb4 
not /dev/sdc4
   Using duplicate PV /dev/sdb4 without holders, replacing /dev/sdc4
   Volume group containing /dev/sdb4 has active logical volumes
   Physical volume /dev/sdb4 not changed
   0 physical volumes changed / 1 physical volume not changed

This was after running vgimportclone /dev/sdc4

It immediately replaces the one I target with the one I am using, (don't 
need to change, don't need) and then says it's active, duh.

I guess I'll just need to reboot a live DVD or actually OpenSUSE DVDs 
are faster.
