Unable to resize fedora 12 lvm parition with gparted


Unable to resize fedora 12 lvm parition with gparted. Need to resize to make room for ubuntu linux on same drive. When the fedora lvm parition is selected gparted says "No lvm support at this time". I am using gparted through the pmagic (partedmagic) linux boot disk. I have almost the lasted pmagic (5.7) there is a pmagic 5.8 on source forge.

If your trying to shrink lvm partition you have to shrink the partitions within lvm first.
