Great to having your backing in our little undertaking! Things are going well...just slow, but slow lets me think things though! Had to swallow hard to let go of my tried and true and reach out to a upgradeable future! LOL":O|

Did you get the flash player working in Firefox?
I've had problems with it also.
Either the browser won't automaticlly install it or downloading it from adobe.com and manually installing it won't work either.

Yeah...which is to say Gizmo held my hand to get it done! Stay close I won't let him get away without
installing my Flash in FireFox! ":O}

Ah, crap. You're using LVM. Forgot about that.

Ok, I need for you to su and then do the following:

Code:
pvs
This will provide an output of the physical volumes you have installed with LVM. I'm guessing it will look similiar to this (the sizes will obviously be different):

Code:
  PV         VG         Fmt  Attr PSize   PFree
  /dev/sdb2  VolGroup01 lvm2 a-   148.94G 32.00M
  /dev/sda2  VolGroup00 lvm2 a-   114.94G 96.00M
If /dev/sdb2 is indeed VolGroup01, then I need for you to su and do the following:

Code:
lvdisplay VolGroup01
The output should look something like this:

Code:
  --- Logical volume ---
  LV Name                /dev/VolGroup01/LogVol00
  VG Name                VolGroup01
  LV UUID                zOQogm-G8I7-a4WC-T7KI-AhWe-Ex3Y-JVzFcR
  LV Write Access        read/write
  LV Status              available
  # open                 0
  LV Size                146.97 GB
  Current LE             4703
  Segments               1
  Allocation             inherit
  Read ahead sectors     0
  Block device           253:2
  
  --- Logical volume ---
  LV Name                /dev/VolGroup01/LogVol01
  VG Name                VolGroup01
  LV UUID                araUBI-4eer-uh5L-Dvnr-3bI6-4gYg-APgYy2
  LV Write Access        read/write
  LV Status              available
  # open                 0
  LV Size                1.94 GB
  Current LE             62
  Segments               1
  Allocation             inherit
  Read ahead sectors     0
  Block device           253:3
Assuming the first one listed is the larger of the two (the first LV Size line is larger than the second LV Size line), then I need you to su and do the following:

Code:
mount /dev/VolGroup01/LogVol00 /mnt/backup
Then show me the contents of /mnt/backup/home.

I do not know. What I do know is I can't get where I want to be from here.

Can you boot from your backup drive? Then run vgscan again and show me what you have?

No, my backup is completely taken over by Acronis, non bootabe. I access it to backup and restore by way of the booting the CD.

I still have my non upgraded Fedora 10 drive that was an update of 8 that I can boot...idf that helps...?

If you boot your other F10 drive, is it the same as what you had before we started all of this mess?
