    would you mind pasting your output as text rather than images?

since you are using LVM to manage your /usr partition, you probably should check the LVM-documentation.

to extend the partition (to e.g. 10GB)

# lvextend -L10G /dev/mapper/vg0-usr

after that you can extend the filesystem. this is fs-specific, under ext3 use:

# resize2fs /dev/mapper/vg0-usr

you might have to reboot between the two commands, and it would be safer to do an offline fsresize (that is: unmount /usr before running resize2fs; which might be hard on a running system; use a live-CD in such a case (e.g. the Debian installer CD has a "Rescue" option for such cases)

    There shouldn't be any need to reboot after an lvextend. And AFAIK online expand is pretty safe.
