I am new to the site but have reasonable experience with Linux but certainly wouldn't call myself an expert!
I don't however have any previous experience with LVM prior to this install.
I'll give everyone a quick "heads up" on my system / LVM config.
The system is a Dell PE1850 with 1 Seagate Cheetah SCSI Disk, it is controlled by a LSI Logic (MPT Fusion in the Kernel) RAID controller, however currently it is not in RAID.
I am running the Debian (Etch) distro, Kernel 220.127.116.11 and have created a logical volume group called "Debian"
My fstab reads the following:
/dev/mapper/Debian-root 481M 248M 208M /
/dev/mapper/Debian-tmp <sizes> /tmp
/dev/mapper/Debian-usr <sizes> /usr
and so on with a logical volume for usr, tmp and var directories.
I went through the LVM volume resize as desribed here.
I unmounted my / volume and my /home volumes, and due to the large space I had on /home, used lvreduce -L to reduce the size by 10G. I then used lvextend and resize2fs and rebooted.
Afterwards my system would not boot (due to errors on dm4) however it allowed recovery console) and if I run fsck or e2fsck it claims that the filesystem size (according to superblock) is different to the physical size of the drive.
e2fsck confirms all logical volumes are fine except the /home directory. However I can still access the /home directory and its contents (but it doesn't matter if these have to be destroyed)
I have now taken the /home mounting out of the fstab which boots the system np. However the problem still remains.
Anyone have any idea's how to fix this or what I did wrong to cause the error? Any help is appreciated!
