RFE: update to 1.36
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:00 EST
Description of problem:
The current e2fsprogs package for Fedora Core 3 (and RHEL) have some
very serious problems and the package should be updated to 1.36.
The following is from the 1.36 RELEASE-NOTES:
All of the patches that were applied to Fedore Core 3's
e2fsprogs-1.35-11.2 have been integrated, although sometimes with a
lot of bug fixes first. Users of Fedora Core 3 are strongly
encouraged to upgrade to e2fsprogs 1.36 as soon as possible.
Add support for filesystem with the online resizing via resize inode
feature. Fixed numerous bugs from the Fedora patches. The Fedora
patches also didn't bother to do any consistency checking on the
resize inode, or add any tests to the regression test suite. The "-R
resize=4g" option to mke2fs was a no-op in the Fedora patches, despite
being listed in mke2fs's usage message. All of these shortcomings
have been corrected.
Seconded. 1.36 fixed a fs that FC3's 1.35 couldn't fix. ext2resize is on 1.1.19,
Fixed in rawhide.
