I Lost Some Space Via LVM
I am using a simple LVM system under ext3.
I have already used resize2fs under all partitions.
I made a error under a partition name and deleted, via LVM, the offensive partition.

Now, I have a missing 20G partition that I cannot get back. The missing space of 20G partition does not show anywhere, and I really would like it back.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Does not show anywhere...? You deleted an LV, and then 20GB disappeared from vgdisplay(8)? You deleted a PV, and the blocks are no longer accessible by fdisk(8)?

Please clarify. What did you do - exactly - and what output are you looking at, exactly?

errors in LVM
I have still been messing around and while I regained the 20G [[I forgot to refresh dolphin]], I see some other errors:

"command failed with status code 5"


"failed to set a proper state for notification by cookie value
${a decimal number and an octal number}
to initialize waiting for incoming notification"

I am at a loss.
I have been using LVM since about 2006 and this is first time I have ever had a problem with it like this.

Thank you for any assistance.
