Re: [linux-lvm] lvm and reducing vols/ext3


OK, but doesn't the same argument apply to non-root file systems? - don't I still have to resize the file system as well as resizing the LV?

I can see that LVs might be quite convenient spread over multiple physical drives but I can't see that much advantage on one drive . .

I have looked around at the docs and googled and it seems if I want to

reduce a root vol/partition I have to:

- boot on an emergency CD

- resize the root ext3 partition

- reduce the lv

Isn't this process just making the exercise more complicated than it
would have been if I didn't have LVs?
