[opensuse] Where does LVM Info live
Trying to recover a crashed disk....

I was under the impression that using LVM tools like 'pvscan' and 'lvscan' could find the LVM partitions, if you could get past the first few sectors/cylinders of the disk. That is the volume groups info was 'out there' regardless of the tables manipulated by fdisk.

I'm having trouble doing the latter, outer cylinder may be corrupted.

Ideas?
