Some time back I used evms and the evms-gui and found it to be a pretty handy tool.

Currently, on my 11.3 box, yast (dependencies -> provides) shows that lvm2-2.02.67-4.1.1.x86_64 provides the evms tools - but they are not actually in the package, and not in the file list.

Then there is this page: 4.4. Partitioning which says evms was dropped since 11.1

Perhaps the spec file was never updated?

I couldn't find anything on why evms was dropped. Does anyone know of an alternative utility that makes resizing LVM and working with LVM volumes as easy as evms and evms-gui did? Perhaps something has replaced these, but I'm not really aware of anything which did this as well as these tools did.
