[linux-lvm] Dual Boot with LVM



I posted a message on this, but no-one has an answer. I try again.

I dual boot my machine between RedHat 9 and Gentoo 1.4. Both use the
same PV, and share several LVs. In RedHat all operates as expected. In
Gentoo, the LVs are usable, but lvscan, lvcreate, etc give the following
error:

root gecko root # lvscan
lvscan -- ERROR "pv_status_all_pv_of_vg(): no PV" getting status of
volume  group "Volume00"


Running pvscan in Gentoo shows the PV to be inactive:

root gecko root # pvscan
pvscan -- reading all physical volumes (this may take a while...)
pvscan -- inactive PV "/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part2" of VG
"Volume00" [53.71 GB / 33.32 GB free]
pvscan -- total: 1 [53.71 GB] / in use: 1 [53.71 GB] / in no VG: 0 [0]

Yet, the LVs can be mounted without trouble.


What can I do to correct this?
