Partition resizing on a linux LVM


Ok, so I've got a 40 GB VG on my Debian installation with LVM, which is way more than enough. However my rootfs (/dev/mapper/root) is currently maxed out at 9999MB. So the question is, can I move some free space from (/dev/mapper/home), which is about 30 GB which I don't need that much space there. And move about 10 GBs to (/dev/mapper/root) to my rootfs.


Thank you in advance.

Regards,

Nes

Here are a couple of links that may help. One is from Ubuntu but I am sure it will have usefull information for you. The other link talks about resizing a partition but not shrinking one.

At the very least the above links should point you in the right direction.
