[linux-lvm] Re: recovering the root partition under lvm



Hi,

I'm new to the list and also "very" new to lvm. I need some help
badly.

I installed FC5 on a VMware machine with the host being XP. The
installation went OK and as I said I didn't realize what the
installation was offering me in terms of the disk configuration.
Unfortunately at one point I stopped the virtual machine without
going through the proper linux shutdown sequence. So now the system
refuses the boot with a "kernel panic" message. After poking around
a bit I realised that the root partition was installed under an
LVM volume which I cannot access now. I booted the system with a
live-cd (gentoo) which has all the lvm tools. I need help in the
form of a recipe sequence on how I can fix the problem without
wiping it irreversibly.  Below is the output from running "lvdisplay".
Many thanks in advance.

Daniel
