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.

Comment 2 Robert M. Riches Jr. 2004-02-01 00:12:51 UTC
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 18:57:26 UTC
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?

querida:~ $ rpm -q e2fsprogs

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.
