ok everything seems to working. after i move the logvols i remove the
old pv and try to boot the system. now the problem during the boot linux
can't find the volume group so can't find it's / since the / is on the
first logvol of the vg. this on centos-5.
the strange thing if i boot from centos rescue dvd it see the vg and
logvols too and i can chroot /mnt/sysimage into the new real system.
what can be the reason that if i boot the new system it can't find the
vg and it's logvols?
