Recently installed Fedora 14 64 bit on a hardware RAID 1 from distro DVD, and set up an LVM with an encrypted /home partition. I now need to resize (enlarge) the /home partition and have not been able to do it due to system-config-lvm telling me:
"Logical volume is not mounted but is in use. Please close all applications using this device (eg iscsi)"
I have tried doing this logged in as user, and also as root. I've tried with a Live CD, but an additional problem there is that the Live does not recognize the hardware RAID and tells me I have the same /home partition in two devices, which are the two disks in the RAID array, and refuses to resize.
I found this link:
which details a rather complex process to achieve what I want, but I am wondering if there is an easier way ?...
I am not very experienced and any help would be greatly appreciated.
PS... forgot to mention I have been able to successfully resize all other LV's within the LVM, so I am assuming it is the encryption that is causing the problem....
