So long story there is an SVN VM (vmware server) that has run out of space. I can't commit because it says it's out of space. The VM has one 80GB virtual drive attached (hda), a /boot partition, and a big VG (VolGroup00) for /
I am archiving and deleting old SVN repos from the disk, but I am getting no free space back. What do I need to do to get this space back available for use? I use Linux for almost everything, but have never really played with LVM enough to know what's going on.

Since yesterday, space has been freed...

Something still seems weird, since it says 959M avail, and yet 67G used with a 72G size...
So I am getting space back, now, from deleting repositories...and yet, balance is not yet restored in the universe...
