    Problem in mounting 'LogVol00' while booting ?


    I reduced my size of "LogVol00" by "lvreduce -L" command. Then i tried to reboot for mounting. But i am getting error as below. please help me in this, i don't have data in "LogVol00". but i don't want to reinstall OS.

    error i am getting when i boot:

    "mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad Superblock of /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00

    Missing codepage or helper program, or other error
    In some casses useful info is found in syslog -try
    dmesg| tail or so"

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    Reducing the volume size just reduces the virtual partition size, not the file system size. You will need to run fsck with the volume unmounted to fix this up. Here is an article that explains how to resize an ext3 file system: How To Resize ext3 Partitions Without Losing Data | HowtoForge - Linux Howtos and Tutorials
