    Hi folks,


    My HD has extend partition and LVM. Is there any way to detect and mount them on running a LiveCD?


    Made following test w/o result.

    # fdisk -l
    Code:
    Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
    
       Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
    /dev/sda1   *           1          31      248976   83  Linux
    /dev/sda2              32       19457   156039345    5  Extended
    /dev/sda5              32       19457   156039313+  8e  Linux LVM
    
    sda1 is mounted automatically with its icon displayed on desktop.

    # ls -al /media/sda1
    Code:
    total 10410
    drwxr-xr-x 4 root root    1024 Jul 24 10:21 .
    drwxr-xr-x 6 root root    1024 Aug 29 06:14 ..
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1033449 Apr 15 02:28 System.map-2.6.20-15-generic

    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1726608 Apr 15 02:28 vmlinuz-2.6.20-15-generic
    

    # ls /media/
    Code:
    cdrom0  floppy0  sda1  sda5
    
    sda5 seems mounted as well.


    # ls -al /media/sda5
    Code:
    total 2
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 1024 Aug 29 06:14 .
    drwxr-xr-x 6 root root 1024 Aug 29 06:14 ..
    
    But nothing found on it.

    Advice would be appreciated. TIA
