Using the Centos 7 installation DVD, I followed the partitioning proceedure that I can now almost do in my sleep, creating the following partitions:
- 500 MiB /boot with an xfs file system on an actual partition
- 1024 MiB swap
- 20 GiB / with an xfs file system on a logical volume
- /home with whatever space is left with an ext4 file system on a logical volume
So I used this mistake as an opportunity to explore resizing my logical volume. It took a bit of poking around, but eventually I found this webpage, from which I did the following:
- Logged into the GUI as root so that /home would not be in use.
- Ran yum install system-storage-manager to install ssm.
- Ran ssm list to see my volumes.
- Ran ssm resize -s [size] [volume] to make /home larger.
