When using the below information be aware that any data contained within the logical volume group will be gone after the logical volume is removed. The information below explains how to first list the current logical volumes with lvscan and then how to remove a specific logical volume with the lvremove command.

Basic Linux Part 1: Command-line CD Fu

Alex and I are going to start a series on basic Linux shell commands and all the neat things you can do from the terminal. In my opinion there is a shortage of these type of articles on the internet. We are going to try to cover most every basic task and show how it can be done in the shell with no GUI or Desktop at all.  I am going to start out with this article on cd recording, but we will cover such topics as watching movies in the framebuffer, connecting to wireless via the shell, shell based irc chat clients, mysql commands and many more things. I have no idea how many articles there will be in the series but if anyone has a specific request or question you can always post in our engage question and answer section for a more personalized response.
