So I've run into a shortage of space for my system-root. I am using LVM. I used gparted to shrink one partition by 10gb, and tried to add these to my /dev/mapper/fedora-root using lvextend --size '+10gb' '/dev/mapper/fedora-root' I have a message telling me that System root size has been increased by 10gb, but when I reboot, it hasn't been. Is it because I used lvextend directly from my Fedora install ?


Edit : Here is my parted -l : And df :

What about giving one more chance to the good old GUI system-config-lvm ?

You have increased the size of the volume, but you haven't resized the filesystem. If the filesystem on the volume is ext, resize2fs /dev/mapper/fedora-root will finish the job.
