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 lastest pmagic (5.7) there is a pmagic 5.8 on source forge.

Are you trying to make larger or smaller?
If you're trying to make smaller you have to decrease size of partitions within lvm.

Try to follow these steps, hope it'll work for you.
