Description of problem:

Theodore Ts'o has fixed into 1.34:
"Fixed a bug introduced in E2fsprogs 1.30 which caused fsck to spin in a tight
loop while waiting for a child fsck to exit in some cases. This burns CPU times
which slows down the low-level filesystem check."

Rawhide should soon have 1.34-1.

Any word on when/whether this will be released as production
for RHL 9?  With RHL 8.0, my main machine never took more
than about 5 minutes to check filesystems after "shutdown
-rF now" or a power drop or other unplanned shutdown.  Now,
RHL 9 takes 50 minutes (!) to check the filesystems--just a
little less than an hour.

I just tried
and e2fsprogs-1.32-6.i386.rpm is the only e2fsprogs I see.
There are lots of references to e2fsprogs 1.34 for Fedora
but none for RHL 9 or rawhide.

If a 1.34-1 for RHL 9 can be found, what is the level of
confidence that it is safe?

Comment 3 Robert M. Riches Jr. 2004-02-03 13:57:26 EST
In newsgroup comp.os.linux.redhat, P Gentry claimed
was the package referred to above, with such mention
implying the package was built for and safe to use
on RHL 9.

Can someone confirm that?

Red Hat Linux release 9 (Shrike)

I got the src.rpm time ago(Wed 06 Aug 2003 10:17:28 PM CEST) from
rawhide and it works for me without problems until today.
