[ubuntu] howto resize a lvm volume group

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – hi, ive setup a partition over my 80gb drive which includes a lvm volume group called vgpool but i forgot to create a boot partition outside of the lvm. theres still space on the drive, but how do i get the volume group smaller? inside the lvm are various logical volumes called: usr/var/home/tmp and so on. i know that the space allocated for the volume group is bigger than all logical volumes combined. so what i need is to shrink the volume group and after that the surrounding partition to get a small boot partition at the end of the lvm (outside of it) a few hours ago i thought Cod (Hardware)
