Note to self: accessing LVM volumes from live CD

If you have a Linux machine with LVM volumes on it, and you need to boot it from a live CD (for example SysRescueCD) and you wonder where your volumes are, just issue (in an LVM enabled system, of course)

# vgchange -a y

and your volumes will be available under /dev/$VOLUME-GROUP-NAME or under /dev/mapper
