I am running Fedora Core 1 with stock RedHat kernel 2.4.22-1.2188.nptl. I
filled my /usr/local to 100% and decided I needed some more space so I ran
the lvextend and resize_reiserfs commands like I have done many times

Nobody has an opinion to offer? I've been a big fan of LVM for ages but
this incident has really shaken my confidence in it. It is my
understanding that all of the software I am using should be pretty solid
by now. I am hesitatnt to allow LVM operations on production systems
anymore if this sort of thing can happen without explanation. :( I would
like to think I did something wrong but I've used lvextend and
resize_reiserfs a number of times before on other machines without

I've never used resize_reiserfs, but I do know that a lot of people I talk to won't use ReiserFS because of past problems that have since been fixed. The tools that come with ReiserFS are generally very good. Personally I only use ext3 or XFS on LVM because of ReiserFS's slowness when being written to by more than one process.

If I had to blame one thing, I'd blame the heavily hacked 2.4 kernel that came with Fedora. :-P
