Re: LVM + XFS/Ext3 (Was no space left on device: LVM, Gnus --> dpkg,apt-get ?)

I made som very basic test on this some some weeks ago, and I extended
an ext3(2?) fs sucessfully (i.e. the data was intact after the
expansion).  If I recall correctly you can extend the filesystem more or
less "in use" but you have to unmount it to reduce it.  I should say
that although the filesystem was mounted during extension there was no
"real usage" of it (no fileaccess).
