Yes, you can install the system-config-lvm package. Here are the details:
Status: install ok installed
Maintainer: Philipp Huebner <email@example.com>
Depends: python, python-support (>= 0.90.0), gettext (>= 0.17),
gsfonts, lvm2, menu, python-glade2, python-gnome2, python-gtk2
Description: A utility for graphically configuring Logical Volumes
System-config-lvm provides a graphical interface to the LVM tools (and related
utilities, including fsck and resize2fs) which is good for non-emergency
storage administration. It enables you to manage your logical volume and
filesystem configuration with a few mouse clicks, and it prevents potentially-
disasterous command-line mistakes such as reducing a logical volume size before
reducing the filesystem contained within that volume.
(One word of warning: system-config-lvm does not recognize RAID elements as
being in use, and therefore lists them as "Unitnitialized Entities". If you are
using a LVM-on-RAID configuration, system-config-lvm will let you wipe out RAID
elements by making them into PVs. Be careful!)
