Re: [linux-lvm] vg disappeared after replacing disc in raid10

Thanks for all your help. 
The problem was in fact knoppix, but not because it had an older version of lvm2 or even lvm1.

The problem was that the human-readable part I extracted from the beginning of the device contained invisible characters in front of the 
'vol0' label in the file 'volt.txt' .
These characters were not visible in terminal using 'cat', 'more', and they also did not appear in standard error as a consequence of the 'vgcfgrestore' command, as witnessed by the first line of the error:

Learn to use 'vim', at least for rudimentary use.  It is the code editor on live CDs because its minimal version is very small.  The enhanced version adds a macro language with a huge library.
