Description Joshua Daniel Franklin 2005-01-03 19:18:30 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)
Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0

Description of problem:
As reported in bug #142863, the default naming scheme of
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-XXX filesystem names are too long for normal df
output. The logwatch file /etc/log.d/scripts/services/zz-disk_space 
should use the -P flag to get useful output. 

Currently LogWatch (on by default in RHEL4b2) shows nearly useless
output like this:

------------------ Disk Space --------------------

/dev/sda1              99M   32M   63M  34% /boot

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL3b2 with default filesystem names
2. Run LogWatch
3. Look at output

Comment 1 Joshua Daniel Franklin 2005-03-01 22:16:38 UTC
An alternative way of fixing this would be to make the default
anaconda naming scheme something like 'vg0x' and 'lv0x' instead of
'VolGroup0x' and 'LogVol0x'. This would also be a mnemonic to connect
the volume with the tools used with them (vgdisplay, etc.)
