LVM: resize a physical volume, volume group and volume

pvresize /dev/sda
lvextend -l +100%FREE ssd/home
resize2fs /dev/ssd/home

The partition is /dev/sda, volume group ssd and volume home; mounted in home.

This will extend the volume home in the volume group ssd, after extending the physical volume to the full extend of the container disk partition.

The partition is supposed to be ext4. If you are using a different filesystem, you have to change the last command.
