Howto: Extend filesystem on root
Using LVM on debian squeeze, I have resized partitions, using lvextend, after running out of space on the root partition.
ACTIVE '/dev/ckdeb1laptop/root' [10.32 GiB] inherit
ACTIVE '/dev/ckdeb1laptop/usr' [9.38 GiB] inherit
ACTIVE '/dev/ckdeb1laptop/var' [3.79 GiB] inherit
ACTIVE '/dev/ckdeb1laptop/swap_1' [2.91 GiB] inherit
ACTIVE '/dev/ckdeb1laptop/tmp' [1.37 GiB] inherit
ACTIVE '/dev/ckdeb1laptop/home' [40.52 GiB] inherit
However, I believe I still need to extend the filesystem itself to fill the partitions, as I am still receiving partition full messages, when trying to write to the root partition.
At the moment I think it's only letting me write to a couple of GB, 3 or 4, definitely not the 10.32 it should allow.
I assume I'll need a live disk to extend the root?
