Just a guess, but what about vgmknodes?


Great. This was it. Thanks! This command appears to be a bit
hidden. It's neither mentioned in the lvm-howto nor in the lvm2 man-page.


And LVM2 tools ignore any '/dev/' prefix anyway in this
context - 'lvresize vg01/lvol1' is sufficient.


Well, yes but if one wants to shrink the filesystem on a logical volume
the tools to do so, like "resize_reiserfs", expect afaik a proper device.
