Linux partitioning

Ok in trying to extend a linux partition (lvm, centos) it appears I've screwed it up, it now says "A start job is running for dev-centos-mapper/[login to view URL]" and sits there.

[root@challenger ~]# fdisk /dev/xvda2

Welcome to fdisk (util-linux 2.23.2).

Changes will remain in memory only, until you decide to write them.

Be careful before using the write command.

Device does not contain a recognized partition table

Building a new DOS disklabel with disk identifier 0xdb33f92c.

Command (m for help): n

Partition type:

p primary (0 primary, 0 extended, 4 free)

e extended

Select (default p): p

Partition number (1-4, default 1): 3

First sector (2048-124803071, default 2048): t

Using default value 124803071

Partition 3 of type Linux and of size 59.5 GiB is set

Command (m for help): w

The partition table has been altered!

Calling ioctl() to re-read partition table.

WARNING: Re-reading the partition table failed with error 22: Invalid argument.

The kernel still uses the old table. The new table will be used at

the next reboot or after you run partprobe(8) or kpartx(8)

Syncing disks.

[root@challenger ~]# partprobe

That's what I did - I need someone to reverse it, if possible.

I need someone who knows how to fix this, I don't have time for a google chancer, if you don't know what you're doing - do not bid. Start your bid with "I'm not an Indian googler"
