Ok, the size of the mount point (itself) does not effect how much it can hold. The size of the file system being mounted does. For example you can mount a 1Tb fs on a mount point residing on a 40Gb hard drive.
From the look of your drive you will either have to add another drive or decrease the size of one of your other partitions. Before you can reduce the size of the partition you will have to reduce the size of the associated VolGroup. As I consider LVMs to be pretty close to the anti-Christ, I would not be the best person to step you through that process. If you want help adding another drive, I would be glad to be of assistance.
I followed wizard steps from System settings( Logical Volume Management ).
And resized /backup mount point from 360 G.B to 100 G.B to have more space for /oracle mount point ....... Success
But when trying make the same step for /oracle mount point to increase its space ........ Fail It give me error ( ext2online: unable to resize /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol07 )
What is the solution?
