With Ubuntu, you'll probably first need to install lvm. Once you've done
Reading all physical volumes. This may take a while...
Found volume group "gen" using metadata type lvm2
Found volume group "os" using metadata type lvm2
I have two. If I want to then activate that device then I run:
# vgchange -a y gen
Afterwhich I'll have a device like so
# lvdisplay gen
--- Logical volume ---
LV Name /dev/gen/share
VG Name gen
.. snip ..
Block device 253:2
Note the LV Name line, that corresponds to what can be considered your
device. Mount it as normal
mount /dev/gen/share /mnt
And you are up and running.
