At completely the wrong moment, another disk in my home server went bad. It first showed as loads and loads of ide errors. I had no time to deal with it, so I just left it spewing errors. Which made the problem go away for the biggest part. Eventually I got around to buying a new disk, a cheap 320 Gig disk. I wanted to set up /scratch new, without reiserfs and started to move data to a new scratch volume. This went well until I wanted to shrink the logical volume: the whole volume set became corrupted. I was still able to access my data, so I borrowed some diskspace, reused some other disks and copied everything to another machine using rsync. After I rebooted the server, the volume groups were indeed gone, and I switched to 'old-fashioned' partitions and spend quite some time dividing the loads of data on the new partitions. All is back to normal now, but without lvm or reiserfs.
