I have a Volume Group with Unused space. This 40Gig should become an entidy in order to install Microsoft windows 7 on it. I do not have extra space on the drive - that is why I want to shrink the VG!
LVG berta resides on sda2 and consists of
lv_root lv_swap unused_space
I want it to become
and have a seperate entidy made out of unused_space. Microsoft Windows 7 has to get installed on this entity. I do not understand why Linux made simple things complicated. I utterly hate LVM and think its absolute bollocks.
Edit: I found the answer. The necessary steps depict how complicated LVM really is. In my opinion it is best to avoiding LVM until
pvresize matures as promised in its man pages.
If you run into problems when you want to remove lvswap even if in resuce mode, then try
swapoff /dev/vg_1/lv_swap lvchange -an /dev/vg_1/lv_swap
