Re: [linux-lvm] Recovery of data in LVM from a corrupt disk


As I told you knopix has not natiuve support to LVM.
Links you gave to me demonstarte that to recover LVM you need complexes steps not required for other filesystem or logical volume managers.

I use now filesystems usable by stupid people like me and I live LVM for more clever people.

Why not for example use Knoppix if to recover fedora you need it ?
At least Knoppix arrive with many good recovery tools. (But not LVM native support).

Best regards

It does as I have used knoppix LVM support several times.

There is plenty of good information there.

I agree that people who aren't willing to do any research or
diagnostic work when they have a failure caused by their broken
hardware should not use LVM or Linux, or computers.

I would rather they continued developing the software as opposed to
paying people to write documentation covering every possible outcome
of hardware problems which users still will not read.
