Description Nate Straz 2005-09-06 14:59:19 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050720 Fedora/1.0.6-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
When I create a logical volume and select ext2 or ext3 as the file system on it,
the progress bar does not disappear after mkfs finished.  Once I strace the system-config-lvm subprocess the gui continues.  When I select "gfs (local)" the
GUI doesn't hang.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make a LV with system-config-lvm and select ext2 or ext3 as the file system type.  

Actual Results:  The progress dialog stays up.

Expected Results:  The progress dialog should disappear and the system-config-lvm display refreshed.

Additional info:

The GUI probably should be using the -q flag to mkfs.
