Description Steven Elliott 2006-11-16 23:04:46 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):

How reproducible:

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.
Actual results:
system-config-lvm does not allow the volume to be expanded.

Expected results:
system-config-lvm does allows the volume to be expanded.

Additional info:
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
section 7.3):
Consequently all references to ext2online in system-config-lvm should be changed
to resize2fs.
