Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 180278
mount of GFS file system doesn't work from s-c-lvm
Last modified: 2009-04-16 19:12:17 EDT
Description of problem:
When you create a GFS (local) file system with system-config-lvm and tell
it to mount somewhere the mount command fails.
The dialog says
mount command failed. Command attempted: "/bin/mount /dev/errata/mirror
/mnt/mirror" - System Error Message: mount: you must specify the filesystem type
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This seems more like an underlying GFS bug. You shouldn't have to specify the
file system type, but with GFS you always have to.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a logical volume with file system type "GFS (local)"
2. Check the "Mounted" checkbox and specify a location
The above error message in a dialog box.
No errors and a GFS file system mounted where specified.
This bug is fixed as a part of bz159456 - GFS support
Fixed in 1.0.17
