Not sure if the Live CD supports LVM but from a quick google search there are many links on the subject. This one is simply. http://www.linux-sxs.org/storage/fedora2ubuntu.html

For this procedure, you need a connection to Internet.
After the system has been loaded from the live cd, install lvm, load the module and then activate the volumes
Code:

sudo -i
apt-get install lvm2
modprobe dm-mod
vgchange -a y

then lvm is ready for use. For help
Code:

lvm help

Just quoting the instructions from the linked page from archive.org since the original is down.

Accessing a Fedora Logical Volume from Ubuntu

A while back, I started experimenting with Ubuntu after playing with Fedora. I decided to jump to Ubuntu and needed to move data from the Fedora-managed logical volume to Ubuntu. Here's what I did.

Boot Ubuntu.

Install lvm2:
$ sudo apt-get install lvm2

Load the necessary module(s):
$ sudo modprobe dm-mod

Scan your system for LVM volumes and identify in the output the volume group name that has your Fedora volume (mine proved to be VolGroup00):
$ sudo vgscan

Activate the volume:
$ sudo vgchange -ay VolGroup00

Find the logical volume that has your Fedora root filesystem (mine proved
to be LogVol00):
$ sudo lvs

Create a mount point for that volume:
$ sudo mkdir /mnt/fcroot

Mount it:
$ sudo mount /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 /mnt/fcroot -o ro,user

Copied my files.
You can skip the modprobe now, at least on Jaunty.

Does anyone have an idea why Ubuntu would be unable to locate lvm2 package? I'm trying to mount and LVM partition for an emergency recovery.

This is the error I receive:

root@chuckd-System-Product-Name:~# apt-get install lvm2
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package lvm2
root@chuckd-System-Product-Name:~#

TheJaspMan,

Not sure what version of Ubuntu you're on. At a guess though, based on your post, your network may not be configured.

Here's what I get:
Quote:

# cat /etc/*release
DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
DISTRIB_RELEASE=10.04
DISTRIB_CODENAME=lucid
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS"
# apt-get install lvm2
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:
libdevmapper-event1.02.1 watershed
The following NEW packages will be installed:
libdevmapper-event1.02.1 lvm2 watershed
0 upgraded, 3 newly installed, 0 to remove and 3 not upgraded.
Need to get 463kB of archives.
After this operation, 1,266kB of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]?

I have no idea what version of Ubuntu you are using but I also faced the same issue while
installing lvm2 using ubuntu 5.10.
Firstly ensure that you have proper network connection(you may check by making any search on google)
And then try apt-get install lvm2.....

Hope it works for ......:newbie:

1. Boot Ubuntu.
2. Install lvm2:

$ sudo apt-get install lvm2

3. Load the necessary module(s):

$ sudo modprobe dm-mod

4. Scan your system for LVM volumes and identify in the output the volume group name that has your Fedora volume (mine proved to be VolGroup00):

$ sudo vgscan

5. Activate the volume:

$ sudo vgchange -ay VolGroup00

6. Find the logical volume that has your Fedora root filesystem (mine proved to be LogVol00):

$ sudo lvs

7. Create a mount point for that volume:

$ sudo mkdir /mnt/fcroot

8. Mount it:

$ sudo mount /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 /mnt/fcroot -o ro,user
OR sudo mount /dev/mapper/VolGroup00/LogVol00 /mnt/fcroot -o ro,user

9. Copied my files.

Thanks guys, your instructions solved this problem once for me.
But now it happens again and after final step terminal returns one string: 'Killed'.
Mount folder is empty.
If I try to mount again it just stuck and not react on Ctrl+C or any.

Quote:

root@ubuntu:/~# mount /dev/myGroup/myVol /mnt/mntPoint -o ro,user
Killed
root@ubuntu:/~# ls /mnt/mntPoint
root@ubuntu:/~# mount /dev/myGroup/myVol /mnt/mntPoint -o ro,user


Also tried /dev/mapper/myVol-myPoint with same result.
Any clues?

Problem solved by using openSUSE liveCD instead of Ubuntu.
