Description Florian La Roche 2003-11-06 14:57:29 EST
Description of problem:
current e2fsprogs on mainframe sets the blocksize based on the
underlying blocksize. With SCSI and minimum blocksize of
512 bytes you then don't get ext2 blocksizes bigger than 1024.

Suggested solution: After setting the blocksize based on the size
of the partition, the blocksize should be checked to be big enough
for the underlying block device.

This can then also probably go into the upstream sources, as this
problem is also showing up for non-mainframe devices.

New rpm is built into rawhide, thanks to Phil Knirsch.
