Description Bill Nottingham 2004-09-14 12:51:33 EDT
e2fsck supports -C <fd> to output progress data to an auxillary

However, /sbin/fsck doesn't properly handle this option.

/sbin/fsck -C4 /dev/sda1
gets translated to:

e2fsck -4 -C0 /dev/sda1
Comment 1 Thomas Woerner 2004-09-16 11:31:54 EDT

e2fsck -C4 -f /tmp/boot.img 4> test
Has written completion information to test.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2004-09-16 14:58:58 EDT
It works in e2fsck, but you can't pass it to /sbin/fsck and get it
passed right. i.e., /sbin/fsck -C4 -f /tmp/boot.img wouldn't work.
Comment 3 Thomas Woerner 2004-09-17 10:15:24 EDT
Fixed in rawhide in rpm e2fsprogs-1.35-11 or newer.
