If you are in such a situation, then you missed one of the goals of LVM.
You should not have allocated all the space in the VG but instead should
have left some free space for further growing or creating LVs when the
Let's try once again: I have not allocated anything at the time of
installation. The only thing I've done was to accept Debian installer's
suggestion to make the OS installation by using the whole hard disk and
make the LVM. (In the other words, I let the installer to calculate
particular partitions.) I see now some of you telling it should not be
done that way, but would not be better to blame the programmers who had
made such a 'bad option' within the installer?
Secondly, either the installer and/or some online manuals had suggested
that the main purpose of LVM was to allow additional reallocating space
within the OS's partitions, later if and when needed, from within an
already working system. If that's not the case, I'd suggest the
programmer community to invent a better solution.
Anyway, as I said earlier, I managed to restore the space to the
original status, then I reallocated things in the proper order. So, in a
couple of days it will be a month since I fixed my wrong attempt to
reallocate the space, and the machine is not complaining ever since :0
