LVM Partition Resizing
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 31, 2008
Hi guys...an old question I'm sure but having spent the last few hours searching the net and ending up no closer than when I started to achieving this I need help..
How do I go about resizing my Fedora 9 partition? Gparted, etc are out the window as it's a LVM partition and any other suggestions would be gratefully received.....
I've got 50 gb of free space I want to expand it into without losing my current data and no access to an external HDD to store the stuff on temporarily....anything else you want to know then just ask
Thanks for taking the time to read
Ubuntu 10.04 hangs up when creating LVM snapshot of /root

Recently, I've tried to create a snapshot of my /root folder in 10.04 (I remember to have done so a couple of times without trouble).
I used the command
booting / lvm / failing hard drive issues (ubuntu server)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 3, 2009
i seem to have a complex issue on my hands that i can't figure out. first, i wasn't able to get access to my LVM'd hard drives via SSH without half of the content being missing or locked out (read-only or unable to open at all). the problem then went up to being unable to boot up - all i got was a long slew of [100.1234] ata1.00: error messages (they eventually DO stop once they get to around 998.234234 or whatever, and then i can log in and it seems to be "stable").
part way through this rebooting ordeal i realized / decided to make power-on-self-test stop and wait if it finds errors (via bios) - that showed me that my 750G SATA drive is "bad" and my two (older) 120G & 250G IDE drives are "ok". i then unplugged the SATA drive, rebooted, and didn't see those error messages. however, my LVM was still obviously not coming together (since LVM was made up of the 120G, 250G, and 750G drives)
so, now it seems:
a) i can't boot smoothly
LVM and Resizing with VMWare
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 23, 2009
I wonder if anyone can help me with this LVM resizing problem I have. I've not really used LVM to any great extent before, but I thought that I'd try it out now that we're moving to a VSphere environment.
So, I created a virtual disc with thin provisioning of 20GB and installed Linux on it using 100MB for /boot (on ext3) and a Volume Group taking up the rest of the drive with the logical volumes created within it. Everything OK so far.
Now, what I did next was to increase the size of the disc in VSphere to 30GB and rescanned the drive so the 30GB was available in Linux as you can see below;
hdd partition for dual boot
location: linux.com - date: May 14, 2009
I am about to attempt my first install of linux.
I have read differing opinions on the best partition software, but (possibly out of ignorance) I seem to find a greater concensus that gparted will be the least likely to lunch my existing XP installation.
I will, of course, backup before I begin.
I have an 80g drive...the new XP installation lives on 50g formatted ntfs (of course) leaving me about 25g for my install. I would like to reclaim at least 10g as I have revised my original estimate of what I would need for linux. I think this reclamation is what is considered a little risky.
Sound right? Any advice before i begin????
Assuming this is successful (it will be...even if I have to reinstall XP on a smaller partition); the next step is the following partition plan for the 35g...
sda1 - / (root) - 5g - ext3
sda2 - /var - 5g - ReiserFS
sda3 - /home - 20g - ext3
sda4 - /extended partition
sda5 - swap - 5g - ext3 (logical)
Sound right? Anyone
RedHat Linux 4 Kernel Panic not syncing kill init no volume groups found
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 20, 2011
I just imaged my RHEL 4 system that was running on a Dell Poweredge 2950 server using Acronis software and I restored the image to a VmWare virtual machine.
Dell Poweredge 2950 - RAID 5
VmWare - using ESX 4.0
OS - Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 ES Update 5 x64
kernel - 2.6.9-55.0.9.ELsmp
I'm getting the following when I try to boot on the new virtual machine. I'm thinking it has to do with the fact that it's new hardware and it's having trouble either finding the right drivers or pointing to the correct place.
"No Volume Groups found
Volume Group "Volgroup00" not found
ERROR: /bin/lvm exited abnormally! (pid505)
mount: error 6 mounting ext3
mount: error 2 mounting none
switchroot: mount failed: 22
umount /initrd/dev failed: 2
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!"
I was able to boot into Linux rescue mode using the boot CD. Then I typed:
No multiCPU in VirtualBox 3
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 14, 2009
I have _one_ program that still needs windows _and_ lots of CPU. The latest WINE update of last week reverted all the speed I could previously get (I can see the icons being drawn one after the other...), so I updated virtualBox to virtualbox-3.0 and was delighted to see the new multiprocessor option... except that it doesn't seem to work.
Now I'm not sure where the problem is. Is it that XP was installed in single CPU and now ignores new available CPUs ? Or some problem in VB not showing the processors properly ?
I'd appreciate if someone can help me diagnose this.
$ sudo aptitude show virtualbox-3.0

FAT32 or NTFS for external hard drive?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 28, 2010
I have a new hard drive, and it will be used with Linux, Mac, and Windows computers. While I used to format them FAT32 a few years ago back when Linux's NTFS support was questionable, I hear that now ntfs-3g can easily and safely read and write on NTFS drives in both OSX and Linux. I've looked this topic up on the web, but most of the posts are from 3-4 years ago and therefore not necessarily accurate anymore.
So, would it be a good idea to format the new drive to NTFS, or keep using FAT32? Should I think about backing up the older drives and reformatting them to NTFS as well?
One more question: With the current NTFS support on Linux, if I delete a file, does it go into a "Trash" folder, or is it permanently deleted right then and there? I seem to remember that it used to be the latter before. Has that changed? With FAT32, deleting the files moves them to the trash before permanently deleting them.
Accessing FAT32 from linux
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 14, 2004
On here someone ( i dont remember his/her name ) told me linux can access FAT32 drives . they should be in /mnt part , right ?
but i cant see my FAT32 Drives in my /mnt part ...
I should add that i have 2 hard disk ( both connected ) which there is a winxp on one of them & a fedora core 1.0 on the other ....
Winxp h.d.d > 2 NTFS & 1 FAT32
Fedora h.d.d > 2 ext3 & 1 Swap
with regards .
