Growing ext4


Hello,

Using Fedora 11

Ok...so I have a small HD (40 GB to be exact). I put in more memory into my laptop (4GB now) and now I am going to buy a bigger hard drive (120G).

My plan was to DD /dev/sda1 (100 MB ext3 /boot partition) and DD /dev/sda2 (34 GB ext4 LVM partition) to the "bigger" drive.

Create /dev/sdb3 on the bigger drive and "grow" the LVM partition.

This has worked fine in the past (I've done it many times)...but as I'm preparing I ran into this in the resize2fs man page.

Code:
The  resize2fs  program  will  resize  ext2  or ext3 file systems.
So my question is. Has anyone resized an ext4 filesystem? Does the resize2fs command work on ext4?
