i don't understand your question quite well. that unused space is already part of your lvm...

are you trying to make a new partition from there? in that case you will have to resize the lvm and create a new partition
hi Oguz sorry made you confused.

i have reduced swap size
so there was some unused space
i want to use that unused space to root partition

i have found a solution and succes to extend root partition.
lvextend -L+4GB /dev/mapper/pve-root
resize2fs /dev/mapper/pve-root

i hope this is the right command
best regards
