Let me clarify. I ran lvextend when the system was booted normally and
the volumes were mounted. This worked as expected.
Then I booted into the FC2 rescue CD and instructed it to NOT search for
and mount Fedora installations. I then ran:
# resize2fs /dev/Volume00/LogVol00
I don't have the specific error, but it basically says that the
specified volume doesn't exist. Indeed if I look in /dev, my volume
group and volumes are nowhere to be found.
At that point I tried:
After only about 1 second, it responds that no volumes are found.
I also tried rebooting from the CD and letting it mount my
installations. In this case, the volume and volume groups are properly
dscovered and mounted. However, if I try to unmount the volume, it
always responds with "device busy".
