Create a new partition in unused LVM space

Hello there,

I just installed Fedora 12 in a laptop with a big hard drive and used LVM for it. The thing is that I used just a fraction of the LVM total size to create the "/" partition and decided to leave the task of creating the other partition (the data partition) with the rest of the LVM space after F12 got installed. Unfortunately I found that Gparted is apparently unable to perform that task of creating a new partition in unallocated LVM space.

Is there any way I can create a new partititon in that unused LVM space?

Thanks,
Joe.

If you really have frespace in the VG it is a piece of cake.
Let's make sure.
Post thse command outputs.

vgdisplay
lvdispaly
lvs

fdisk -l

Then I'll show you the lvm commands to create and lv , format it, and mount it.
(Which could be done with the system-config-lvm gui but you need to know how to use it or you might clobber the other parts.)

Hi, thanks for the reply.

I just figured it out, it is now up and running.

Thanks,
Joe.
