RE: [linux-lvm] vgscan -- no volume groups found



beta 6 tools vgscan seems to work, and with a beta6 kernel, I am finally
back into my system. However, I cannot mount loop devices. losetup works,
but mount fails with no messages, and it's process cannot be killed even
with kill -9. ps lists it's state as D (uninterruptable sleep). Any ideas?
