Description Martin Chlumsky 2012-04-18 13:45:21 UTC
Description of problem: The man page of resize2fs implies that only ext3 filesystems are resizable while they are mounted. From the man page: (As of this writing, the Linux 2.6 kernel supports on-line resize for filesystems mounted using ext3 only.) However ext4 are resizable while being mounted according to this page: http://docs.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/6/html/Storage_Administration_Guide/ext4grow.html Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): e2fsprogs-1.41.12-11.el6.x86_64 How reproducible: Steps to Reproduce: 1. Run man resize2fs 2. Read the first paragraph of the man page Actual results: Man page reads: (As of this writing, the Linux 2.6 kernel supports on-line resize for filesystems mounted using ext3 only.) Expected results: It should read something like this: (As of this writing, the Linux 2.6 kernel supports on-line resize for filesystems mounted using ext3 and ext4 only.) Additional info:
Comment 2 Eric Sandeen 2012-04-18 15:52:11 UTC
There are a few other manpages to be updated as well; this has already been done upstream: commit 4f858546e1c3c452f400a34198b10cb7a1ed2760 Author: Theodore Ts'o <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Sat May 30 12:34:28 2009 -0400 Update man pages to include ext4 in the synposis, instead of just "ext2/ext3" The e2fsprogs programs have historically just said that they operate on ext2 and ext3 file system in their man pages. Update them to say that they also operate on ext4 file systems. Addresses-Launchpad-bug: #381854 Signed-off-by: "Theodore Ts'o" <email@example.com>

This request was not resolved in time for the current release. Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Comment 4 RHEL Program Management 2012-07-10 23:07:15 UTC
This request was erroneously removed from consideration in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4, which is currently under development. This request will be evaluated for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4.

Actually the previous commit I mentioned is already in rhel6; the small update is: commit b344ed7bc3b7e1aeed9c2f8f1ec089117a444366 Author: Theodore Ts'o <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Mon Jul 19 02:23:12 2010 -0400 resize2fs.8: Update man page to indicate ext4 supports on-line resize
