grub cannot access LVM partition anymore

Posted 06-06-2009 at 09:34 PM by fritz_p

hi,

on an older computer I installed openSUSE 11.0 in a LVM partiton, just to try it, with GRUB on a different ext2 partition.
It worked fine until I installed fedora 10 in another partition which I resized with qtparted.
I also changed slightly the LVM partition with qtparted, using the little empty space between the tree chunks (swap, home, root).
Now I cannot boot opensuse anymore!

I have learned how to access the LVM partition, thanks to...

We all started out at the same place; not knowing anything about Linux. Then we learned, what seems like second nature for us
