existing LVM partition won't mount anymore
 
Okay. I've been having great trouble with LVM. :newbie:

In a previous post, I had discussed my difficulties using LVM under SuSE 9.0 with a 2.4-based kernel, but now I'm tring to get my Debian based 2.6 kernel back on track.

I've been trying to figure out how to apply the device-mapper patch to my kernel for snapshot and pvmove capabilities, but before knowing that I needed to patch my kernel, I tried making a snapshot.

Since then, I'm not been able to properly mount one of my LVM partitions. The one in question is the Domino partition listed below:

dehuszar@dblstitch:~$ cat /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda1 / reiserfs defaults 0 1

/dev/hda5 /usr reiserfs defaults 0 2

dblstitch:/home/dehuszar# df -h

dblstitch:/home/dehuszar# ACTIVE '/dev/Domino/Domino' [20.00 GB] inherit
bash: ACTIVE: command not found
dblstitch:/home/dehuszar#

Should I be concerned by the auto/dev/Domino/Domino listing in the df results? and why does it match my root partition's size and usage info? It' won't mount to /domino/ where I originally told it to. It now gives me a "can't read superblock" error.

This used to work, and I'd really like it to work again without icing the partition and reformatting.

Any ideas? Do you need more info?

Thanks in advance,
Sam
