Description of problem:
Running "Fedora Core release 1.90 (FC2 Test 1)" on a Dell 1750,
patched up to last night and running kernel 2.6.3-1.97smp.  Whenever i
run jfs_mkfs i was getting an error message, so i grabbed the 1.1.3
src for jfsutils in order to compile a jfs_mkfs with more debugging
clues.  But by compiling the stock src and running the resultant
binary, i was able to format the same partition.

That is,

# jfs_mkfs /dev/sda2
jfs_mkfs version 1.1.3, 05-Sep-2003
Warning!  All data on device /dev/sda2 will be lost!

Continue? (Y/N) y
The specified disk did not finish formatting.
# mkfs/jfs_mkfs /dev/sda2
mkfs/jfs_mkfs version 1.1.3, 05-Sep-2003
ujfs_get_dev_size: size = 10487232000
number of blocks = 2560359
Warning!  All data on device /dev/sda2 will be lost!

Continue? (Y/N) y
size of dinode = 512
size of dinode = 512

Format completed successfully.

10241437 kilobytes total disk space.

In the above, jfs_mkfs is the binary that came with the system and
mkfs/jfs_mkfs is the one i compiled.  After succesful formatting by
mkfs/jfs_mkfs, i tried running jfs_mkfs again and it failed the same
way.  mkfs/jfs_mkfs worked again, and i've since been able to mount
and run benchmarks against the jfs partition.  Was the system's
jfsutils built against the wrong libraries?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. jfs_mkfs /dev/partition

Actual Results:  The specified disk did not finish formatting.

Expected Results:  a formatted partition!

Should be reopened. The bug is still here in FC2T2 and FC2T3. I cannot
format jfs partition during install. And even recompiling
jfsutils-1.1.4-1.src.rpm didn't help me. BTW version 1.1.6 is already out.

Comment 2 Pedro Fernandes Macedo 2004-05-02 13:24:57 UTC
this bug is happening on FC2T2 and FC2T3 here too. Tried rebuilding
from source and didnt work.

Comment 3 Nathan Ollerenshaw 2004-07-02 02:32:33 UTC
Seeing this on an up2date FC2 system trying to format 1.9TB.

Why was this bug closed?

Comment 4 Pedro Fernandes Macedo 2004-07-02 02:42:23 UTC
There's bug 122603 on the same subject. However , never got an answer
about the things I found out and posted there.
