Re: How to resize LVM?
No it's not hard. djh-novell really summarized it in the 4 points he posted so You are just 4 steps away from what You want to do. If I were in your shoes I would do the backup and just try it. The worst thing You can encounter is recovery from backup which most likely what You will have to do anyway when reinstalling from scratch. But the thing You can gain is learning how to do that and it's so much fun to be able to resize file systems on a running system Once You get the hang of it it is actually quite easy and LVM has methods to back up some meta data or whatever that's called that in most cases lets You recover without backup if You screw something up.
