I don't know mondorescue. To access lv from my rescue system (grml) I
use the following commands:
This creates the /dev/mapper/ entries - and is what is done in debian's
lvm2 init script.
That's exactly what the mondorescue init script does but in some cases
this does not create the /dev/mapper/ entries. I'd sure like to know
