I updated my system (hardware and software) to SuSE 10 but kept the running old SuSE 9.0pro installation:
1. /dev/hda (10 GB) with SuSE 9.0 on ext2 went to /dev/hdc
2. /dev/hda (250 GB) is a new disk with SuSE 10 on ext3 on LVM
New SuSE 10 works from hda and can access the entire old system, which I mounted in and below the new directory /old (which is obviously the old root-directory „/“
SuSE 9.0 crashes during boot-up when I try to access the LVM-parts of the new SUSE using the same statement in /etc/fstab as used in the new SuSE 10 (nor can I mount them „by hand“)
I activated LVM in the bootlevel-editor during boot, so that's not it, either.
didn’t really help and I drew blanks at
I can access the new / and /boot on the new disk from the old system as they are primary partitions not on LVM.
I ran vgscan in the old system and got an error (which was to be expected and doesn't matter according to the documentation).
But I don't dare to run pvcreate, since that will delete all data on the partitions.
How, then, do I mount the new LVM-directories on /dev/hda?
