How do you manually mount an LVM drive?
My /etc/fstab looks like this:
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hdc2 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb1 /mnt/backups auto defaults 0 2
/dev/hdc1 /home auto defaults 0 2
/boot is /dev/hda1 and / is /dev/hda2.
When I installed FC I accidentally set / up as a LVM partition. Yesterday I had to do a rescue on my system with sysreccd - all I needed to do was mount the / partition and edit a file which had an error in it but I couldn't use the normal mount commands. I assume this is because / is under logical volume management.
If I tried to mount /dev/hda2 I got "mount: wrong fstype, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda2, missing codepage or other error"
I also tried mounting it using evmsn (ncurses version) but I couldn't work out how to mount it onto a directory anywhere.
So how do you mount this type of partition manually when you've booted up with some sort of rescue CD?
