Increase size of an encrypted LVM partition


Easy or abandon all hope and reinstall?

I've been using my server for a desktop, my UPS failed (been warning me about the batteries for weeks). I booted my Slackware Server and it seem to come up okay but then while searching in Claws Mail things locked up. I managed to get to the command line (exiting X) but it finally spewed out a kernel panic and quit. When I rebooted half my mailboxes were missing. I've decided to move my stuff over to my desktop, but I need to re-size the partition to make room for my mailboxes and other data.

TIA.

-JJ

PS UPS is SmartUPS about 23 years old. Going to replace it. And yes I know better. :Face Palm:
