adding a drive to existing lvm
 
First, I put another drive in the Debian computer with encrypted lvm. Then I created a partition on it about half the size of the drive to give some logical volumes room to grow. I gave that partition ext3 fs. Next, I didthese are the commands I did. At the end, my / directory is still full at 100%. My drives for that computer are small, but I don't have much extra installed besides the default Debian install.


Code:

pvcreate /dev/hdb1
vgextend debian /dev/hdb1

# I created the new partition exactly 2048 MB.

debian:~# lvextend -L +2048M /dev/debian/root
  Extending logical volume root to 2.27 GB
  Insufficient suitable allocatable extents for logical volume root: 24 more required
debian:~# lvextend -L +2024M /dev/debian/root

Where is the extra 2GB?

did you fsck followed by a resize2fs while unmounted?

No, I later did a ext2online and it's working. I forgot that part.
