FC6 system-config-lvm still uses ext2online
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:49 EST
Description of problem:
On FC6 system-config-lvm does not allow ext3 filesystems on LVs to be expanded
because it wrongly assumes that ex2online is still used to expand online ext2/3
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to expand a LV that has an ext3 filesystem in it by clicking on the
"Edit Proprerties" button.
2. Attempt to increasing the size.
system-config-lvm does not allow the volume to be expanded.
system-config-lvm does allows the volume to be expanded.
As of FC6 the online expanding functionality that was in ext2online has been
moved to resize2fs, but system-config-lvm still checks for the existence of
resize2fs to determine whether online expansion of ext2/3 is supported (see
Consequently all references to ext2online in system-config-lvm should be changed
