Back to square one. I am booting FC5 from disk /dev/sda.
I have a second disk with a full FC5 installation connected and it
shows as /dev/sdb
Mount as suggested above does not do it:
mount -r -t ext3 /dev/sdb2 /mnt/old
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb2,
also does not help. Firstly I can not unmount it because it was created by the
FC5 default installation and contains most of the running system. So unmount reports that it is busy. So I cannot mark the volume group inactive. This is the first part of the recipemovevgtonewsys.html
So I simply connect the disk to the new system.
My second disk shows up as /dev/sdb2
but none of the commands pvscan, vgscan and lvscan reports that disk or the volumes on it.
