Re: [linux-lvm] pvmove didn't work - now system won't boot



Hello,

Yeah you'll want to reduce the size of your filesystem, though you might want to
back stuff up first (dd and such), just incase, since the last time i checked
(which admittedly has been a while) this feature would sometimes result in an
unusable filesystem.  Thank you,

Josef
