Problems using lvm


Hi, i'm using suse 10.0 and i got some lvm problems. I set up everything ok with one PV and one LV, copied some data to it and it worked fine. So I added another PV and resized the same LV to get one big LV. But in the process, I got a message to check the resiserfs before, but yast got the operation done anyway. But, in the LVM manager it shows everything fine, but when I go to access the mount point, it got the old size (but i did'n lost any file thata was in it).

Thanks in advance. Sorry if my explanation was somewhat bad, but I got somewhat lost in LVM vocabulary.

an LV contains a filesystem, and these both have their own seperate size information. you still need to expand the reiserfs partition in the lv. use resize_reiserfs from the reiserfsprogs package or another suitable tool to do this.
