Not which part...

It's more LVM at all which is irritating or better a xterm plus LVM.
Most teachers seem to have a big aversion to everything which only might look 
as a xterm. 
And this is from more than 10m distance...

I only saw online resizing up to now on a S390 with an JFS RAID10 stack.

And I woudn't do so even if everybody says that it will work.

OK, but we all know what a teacher will say to (or how he / she will react on) 
a commandline like this.

- The teacher will fall on his/her knees and will pray to you as _the_ Linux
- He / she will dissapear faster than Scotty will be able to beam 'em up.

Second may make you famous.
 It will be the first proof for a body moving faster than lightspeed. Might be
