Hi, all

I have tried to resize my vm image which is file based using lvm because
my guest os is centos5.3.

The best practice when domU is using LVM is NOT to resize the disk image, but add another disk image as additional PV to domU

I also tried to losetup my resized image on domain0, and mount on
domain0, all seems ok.

If you can mount it and all files are there (no corruption/missing files), then the resize should not make a difference.
I'd try by using a known-to-work kernel and initrd (possibly by copying from a freshly-installed domU system with LVM).
