Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 23573
e2label does not work with the 2.4.0 kernel
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:35 EDT
The format of /proc/partitions has changed, so that instead of getting a
3 1 48163 hda1
you will find a line like:
3 1 4000 ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part1
and it doesn't like it. (The above 2 lines are from different machines,
but show the format change.)
The workaround is to change the entries in /etc/fstab.
You're using devfs. This makes a very large difference - without devfs,
the names are the same.
Does it work with e2fsprogs-1.20-0.02 or higher from rawhide?
I have also uploaded that version to http://people.redhat.com/laroche/
Should work with newer e2fsprogs tools, otherwise please open a new
