I attempted to do a logical volume resize yesterday using the follwoing commands

$sudo pvdisplay

  "/dev/sda8" is a new physical volume of "113.11 GiB"
  --- NEW Physical volume ---
  PV Name               /dev/sda8

$sudo lvresize -L +20GB /dev/mapper/vg-var

So as you can see, it looks like adding the physical volume to the vg worked, because i see free space available there. When I typed the lvresize command, it never returned. I let this run overnight in the background, but this morning I still couldnt successfully do a "pvdisplay" or "lvdisplay" because I think it was waiting on a lock or something, so the command never returned.

When i went to log onto the server's console, I saw a bunch of messages like:

rcu_sched_state detected stall on cpu 2

Now when I boot, I get a kernel panic error, and a message about not being able to mount /mapper/vg-root

cannot open root device "mapper/vg-root" or unknown_block(0,0)
Kernel Panic -not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root file system on unknown_block(0,0)

What should I do to get my system back up and running? Did I attempt to do the logical volume resize correctly?

Thanks
