e2fsadm missing from lvm2 package
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:44 EST
Description of problem:
lvm(1) has e2fsadm, but not lvm2. This is a badly missing piece of
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 2
We are working on providing equivalent functionality to e2fsadm as
options to lvresize, but the code is not finished yet.
It will be added to Fedora when it is ready.
A development version of fsadm is in LVM2 CVS (see
http://sources.redhat.com/lvm2/ ). It needs testing, and support
adding for additional filesystems.
The new approach is to add:
to lvextend/lvreduce/lvresize. This replaces e2fsadm.
Will this take advantage of the ext3 online resize patch in the FC2
How about resiserfs, jfs, xfs?
It's capable of this, but it needs people to provide the templates for
each filesystem type. And needs extending to distinguish between
online and offline resizing.
