Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 112621
(JFS) Description text in rpm details commands that are not included
Last modified: 2013-07-02 22:17:47 EDT
Description of problem:
The Description text produced by an 'rpm -qi' says that:
"The following utilities are available: fsck.jfs - initiate
replay of the JFS transaction log, and check and repair a JFS
formatted device; logdump - dump a JFS formatted device's journal log;
logredo - "replay" a JFS formatted device's journal log; mkfs.jfs -
create a JFS formatted partition; xchkdmp - dump the contents of a JFS
fsck log file created with xchklog; xchklog - extract a log from the
JFS fsck workspace into a file; xpeek - shell-type JFS file system
The package does *not* include the logredo, xchkdmp, xchklog, or xpeek
These same commands are also missing from the Fedora package.
These commands are present in the RH9 package.
Is this still the case with the latest jfsutils package in rawhide?
