I'm struggling to find any information on this. I've resize  my physical
volume and now I want to resize the partition that it is in. However,
gparted won't do it; the move/resize option is greyed out for partitions
of type LVM. I've tried it by booting from the Ubuntu desktop CD.

Any suggestions? Has anyone actually done this successfully and if so
how did you do it?
