Resize LVM?

  1. Hey,

    I have a LVM partition that takes up WAAAY too much space (499 gigs). How would I resize it (physical and logical) to use like 10 gigs and give me the remaining 489 gigs as NTFS or something?

    Are there any tools? I really would prefer to not have to uninstall/reinstall stuff, because I JUST got my darn linux to boot properly though vista boot loader, and it is still a bit confusing :) (Using Fedora 7)

    Thanks for the article, but I thought the default was ext3 and not ext2 for Fedora 7?

    What would I do with that? Or does it not matter? Also, where would the Boot Loader be installed by default?

    And in the article, what would my_vol_grp amd my_logical_vol be? (Sorry, rather new to this)

    If you bothered to read the resize2fs manual, you'd see that it resizes both ext2 and ext3 filesystems.

    Sorry, I son't use RedHat and friends much and even if I do, I use the traditional partitioning instead of LVM. Maybe someone else can tell you how the LVM volumes are named by default..

    I would have read the resize2fs manual if I knew there WAS a manual....

    Anyone know the names?
