HD Failure in LVM - What can I recover?
When setting up Fedora Core 6, I mistakenly decided to continue to use this extra 30GB drive I had.
Well, the system randomly shutdown a couple of times and then I was getting the SMART error for the drive at bootup. This is my dev/hdb drive.
My hda drive has a boot partition (hda1) and a second partition (hda2) that was dedicated to the LVM Volume.
So, I went out and bought a new Seagate drive today and partitioned it as hdc1 (bootable and ultimately to replace my primary drive as well since it is getting old, too) and a second very large hdc2 partition. I then ran the commands to add it to the LVM volume. Up until this point everything was going fine.
I then used the LVM gui to try and move the data off of hdb1 and the system suddenly froze and ultimately had to be rebooted.
Now when I boot up I'm getting the following at the LVM initialization phase:
"...error creating dirty log..."
"...reload ioctl failed: Invalid Argument..."
Then a message saying that two logical volumes in "VolGroup00" active.
"...hash received Sigsegv Backtrace..."
Then some HEX codes
Then, "Kernel Panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init"
So....My question is...Is my installation toast and should I just pull out the two old drive, leave the new Seagate 300GB in there and start from scratch? I'm just not sure how much I can get from the drives as it is.
