Re: [rhelv5-list] resizing LVM

with the root partition?  surely you have to bring the system down, unless you are just extending it.

But you should not need a rescue CD...

I wonder what is the preferred method to resize a LVM with the / and swap partition on it, I noticed it was harder than normal with the rescue CD.
