[linux-lvm] How to grow a PV?

Hi again,

after a bit of research I found out, that I resized my PV some time ago 
using the pvresize command, that was available in lvm_1.1-rc2.
At the moment I am using 1.0.7 (gentoo). My problem is now that 
lvm_1.1-rc2 seems to have disappeared. I read that it was buggy, but 
worked for me at least 4 times.
Could someone please tell me, where I could get lvm_1.1?  This would 
save me a lot of work.

Thanks in advance,

Thomas Kleffel
