Darn, i went offline for about two days, because of a disk failure on my Fileserver … It sucks not to have ANYTHING on my workstation, all the files are on the server, since i mount my home via nfs from there … Reminds me to do some backups, but hell, how does one backup 150GB of data ??? Hints welcome .. I went out and got a pair of new disks, and managed to copy my data over to there, since the defective drive only went offline after a couple of hours … (lucky me :) )

Well everything is back to normal now …

Did i mention how i love LVM+XFS ? Its great, i had my home

on a single 15GB disk which went full, just got a second disc, added it to the Volume Group, did a LVS expand, after that a xfs_growth, and pooof, my home was suddenly 56GB of storage, all without unmounting the volume ..
