 You can resize the "/" LV online:

ystem downYou should be able to resize the swap LV online with lvextend but
would have to de-activate and re-activate the swap to see the larger size,
which probably means a reboot.

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.

Maybe some more details about what you're trying to do, and where
specifically it's failing (or where you don't understand the process)
would be helpful.  Right now, I can't tell if you just need the
process to shrink an LV, are getting stuck by the lack of LVM utility
symlinks on the rescue CD, or something else entirely.
