Tks for your advice.
Already solved my problem with following steps and saved my work on an USB pendrive;
- Burned a Knoppix LiveCD - version 5.1.1
(it has lvm-tools available)
- Booted the PC with Knoppix Live CD
- Started a Terminal
# lvm vgchange --ignorelockingfailure -P -a y
Partial mode. Incomplete volume groups will be activated read-only.
2 logical volume(s) in volume group "ubuntu" now active
It shows the name of the "volume group"
# lvm lvs
LV VG Attr LSize Origin Snap% Move Log Copy%
root ubuntu -wi-a- 142.92G
swap_1 ubuntu -wi-a- 5.89G
# mkdir /vg_mnt
# mount /dev/ubuntu/root /vg_mnt
# ls /vg_mnt/
bin cdrom etc initrd lib media proc sbin sys usr vmlinuz
boot dev home initrd.img lost+found opt root srv tmp var
# ls /vg_mnt/home/satimis/
all my work displayed here.
Inserted an USB pendrive and copied all my work on it.
# umount /vg_mnt
Now I have my work saved on the USB pendrive. Then I successfully copied my files on another PC.
