[linux-lvm] Once again ... Kernel 2.4.0 - What can I do ?



Hello List,

  I'm currently using Kernel 2.4.0-test10 with LVM 0.8final ...
  I have a 55Gig LVM-Partition (with reiserfs) and no backup ....
  (Yes I know, but there's no money for a poor student to backup ...)

  Now I want to use the final 2.4.0 and it is now a fact, that there
  is v0.9 in it. (why it is, is another question...)

  I ask now, what I can do ...
  It seems that they both are not compatible, as the vgscan under
  2.4.0fin brings me a protocol error ...

  Is there a way to "downpatch" the kernel to lvm0.8 ???
  or better:
  can I convert the volume to 0.9 without data-loss ???

Thanx in advance ... Jan

  PS: Please don't tell me all the reasons, why I need a backup.
      I know it myself, but there is at the moment no way ....
