NAMEsystem-config-lvm - GUI for LVM
DESCRIPTIONsystem-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 disastrous mistakes using commandline such as reducing a logical volume size before reducing the filesystem contained within that volume.
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, so be careful about that.
system-config-lvm does exactly what you tell it to do, so watch your click and think about it twice before acting.
