Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 31817
verbosity of e2fsck on framebuffer console.
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:32:11 EDT
The list of invalid bitmap blocks (is that what they are? the header
usually scrolls off the screen, so I can't see) printed at the end of an
e2fsck run is too verbose. On vesafb, it took nearly a minute and a half to
print the entire list from a dirty 9gb volume! I don't think it's important
to list _all_ of the blocks if there are that many, and since there's no
way to change VT's at boot or in a repair-filesystem shell, I'd suggest
printing only an abbreviated list.
I want to keep with the decisions done by the ext2fsprogs maintainer. Other
want to see that list.
