I also ran in to the missing fsadm problem. I have not found any explanation
why Debians lvm2-deb is missing this command. It is not just some script
that one needs only in some special cases but in my opinion it's a very
important script which is called by the main commands that resize logical
Of course you can manually run resize_reiserfs etc. but why do that when you
can automatically resize the fs in question with one extra switch. I'm glad
to say that I found a workaround for this problem.
Get the fsadm-script and man-page from the source tree of lvm2.
Below are the needed commands. You can copypaste them right to the console
and then you got the working fsadm and (lvextend) -r option.
cd /usr/src/ && apt-get source lvm2 && cp lvm2-2.02.39/scripts/fsadm.sh \
/usr/local/sbin/fsadm && chmod +x /usr/local/sbin/fsadm && cp \
