[linux-lvm] A problem (probably conceptual) with snapshot



Today I needed to install Oracle and some other things on my PC, but I
realize that it would be better to make a snapshot and then reboot Linux
with this snapshot mounted instead of root.
Ok, I did that and changed fstab to mount my snapRoot instead root,
ok...I saw with 'df' command that it worked.
And I've installed all what I wanted, some garbage too...by the way,
this snapRoot doesnt means nothing to me, just for testing. And then I
changed the fstab again to mount the root original. But after it, all
the changes I made on snapshot was made on my root LV too. And the
lvdisplay command shows something strange now, about these two LV's. The
output is:

--- Logical volume ---
