problem expanding LVM in Debian 6


Hello everyone,

I've got Debian 6 loaded on a Dell E6520 laptop, and my / partition is nearly full. I used Parted Magic to make room adjacent to / so I could expand it, but pmagic won't work with this because it says that / is lvm2 and not mounted. But Debian 6 says that it doesn't have any lvm's and that / is ext3.

What to do?

Why don't you give us some real data to work with. The (full) output of the following would be a start - might need root/sudo
Code:
fdisk -l
df -hT
