It has not been imported to FreeBSD yet. It is likely we won't see it until FreeBSD 8.

you need options GEOM_LINUX_LVM in your kernel configuration file. It has been renamed to linux_lvm some time ago. However I'm not sure about its state, i.e. whether it works or not.

BTW it's in RELENG_7(_1) not only _8...

I finally compiled a kernel from RELENG_7 just the time to transfer the files from my lvm into my new system.

Thank you

It certainly is in RELENG_7. I didn't know - thanks for pointing it out.
after doing an "geom linux_lvm load" I can now do:
root@kg-vm# geom linux_lvm status
root@kg-vm# geom linux_lvm list
This is on a machine running:
root@kg-vm# uname -a
FreeBSD kg-vm.kg4.no 7.0-STABLE FreeBSD 7.0-STABLE #12: Wed Aug 13 13:28:56 CEST 2008 root@kg-vm.kg4.no:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC amd64
I don't have any lvm on that machine, so I can't test any further.
