Re: [linux-lvm] lvm 1.0.3 kernel panic



I got a knoppix rescue cd with lvm version 1.0.8 running now
and a sshd server to rescue my data. Problem is that this
version is not compatible with my volume group:

vgscan:

vgscan -- removing "/etc/lvmtab" and "/etc/lvmtab.d"
vgscan -- creating empty "/etc/lvmtab" and "/etc/lvmtab.d"
vgscan -- reading all physical volumes (this may take a while...)
vgscan -- scanning for all active volume group(s) first
vgscan -- reading data of volume group "vg01" from physical
volume(s)
vgscan -- found inactive volume group "vg01"
vgscan -- getting block device numbers for logical volumes

vgscan -- checking block device numbers of logical volumes

vgscan -- inserting "vg01" into lvmtab
vgscan -- backing up volume group "vg01"
vgscan -- checking volume group name "vg01"
vgscan -- checking volume group consistency of "vg01"
vgscan -- checking existence of "/etc/lvmtab.d"
vgscan -- storing volume group data of "vg01" in
"/etc/lvmtab.d/vg01.tmp"
vgscan -- storing physical volume data of "vg01" in
"/etc/lvmtab.d/vg01.tmp"
vgscan -- storing logical volume data of volume group "vg01"
in "/etc/lvmtab.d/vg01.tmp"
vgscan -- ERROR 2 writing volume group backup file
/etc/lvmtab.d/vg01.tmp in vg_cfgbackup.c [line 271]
vgscan -- ERROR: unable to do a backup of volume group "vg01"
vgscan -- ERROR "lvm_tab_vg_remove(): unlink" removing volume
group "vg01" from "/etc/lvmtab"
vgscan -- "/etc/lvmtab" and "/etc/lvmtab.d" successfully created
vgscan -- WARNING: This program does not do a VGDA backup of
your volume group

the error looks the same so I assume that something is
incompatible in my old system. I never changed lvm version as
far as I know of... but it might be possible.

Is there a way to access this volume group now?

Any help is really appreciated.
