Re: [linux-lvm] LV recovery



Hi Heinz,
I get the following output:
insmod: /lib/modules/2.4.7-4GB/kernel/drivers/md/lvm-mod.o: insmod
char-major-109 failed.

vgscan --  LVM driver module not loaded

That freaks me out a bit because the module is present. When I try to
load it manually with insmod I get the same error. Does this mean the
metadata has been overwritten?

Thanks
Lawrence
