I know all the command to reduce the lvm
fsck -f /dev/volumegroup/lvm
lvreduce /dev/volumegroup/lvm -L 400M
But when i fire the command
Then i got the following error
root@localhost ~]# umount /dev/volumegroup/lvm
umount: /vg0: device is busy.
(In some cases useful info about processes that use
the device is found by lsof(8) or fuser(1))
This is the output of my /etc/fstab file

I think i must remove the following entry from /etc/fstab
Your fstab doesn't help, if we don't know what devices the UUIDs are connected to, but I suspect that your installation lives on the LVM, and you can't unmount your root partition while you're using it (for obvious reasons.) No worries; just boot from a livecd. Fedora's rescue cd mode will work just fine.
