lvm crashed after Mainboard ended up in smoke
 
Hello together

Unfortunately my mainboard ended up in smoke and I had to change it. Now I have the problem that I cannot start my suse-linux any more, 'cause my system cannot find LVM any more for any reason.
That's on my boot screen:

Loading kernel/fs/reiserfs/reiserfs.ko
Waitin for device /dev/lvol/lvol1 to appear: . Unable to find volume
group "lvol"
Unable to find volume group "lvol"
Unable to find volume group "lvol"
Unable to find volume group "lvol"
Unable to find volume group "lvol"

Reading all physical volumes. This may take a while ...
No volume groups found
Unable to find volume group "lvol"

not found -- exiting to /bin/sh
sh: can't access tty; job control turned off

I tried to access from Knoppix, but unfortunately I couldn't get access to my hd.

The following I got from fdisk -l:

Platte /dev/hda: 160.0 GByte; 160041885696
255 Köpfe, 63 Sektoren/Spuren, 19457 Zylinder
Einheiten = Zylinder von 16065 x 512 = 8225280 Bytes

Gerät boot Anfang Ende Blöcke Id System
/dev/hda1 x 2 51 401625 83 Linux
/dev/hda2 52 19456 1555870662+ 8e Linux LVM

I have no idea how to mount my hd to access my data. Is it possible to attach my hd as slave in another suse-linux machine and to access from an working machine to this hd?

I am very placeful for any comments

Greetings
Mirco

Knoppix doesn't have LVM support, which is why it wasn't helpful.

To mount the lvm, you need to boot using something with lvm support and then activate the lvm like this:

lvm vgscan
lvm lvscan
lvm vgchange -a y

Then you should be able to:
lvm vgscan
lvm lvscan

and see your volume group(s) and logical volume(s). If you don't have any other options for an emergency disk, you can use the FC4 Rescue CD here: http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...6-rescuecd.iso
