Description Eric Sandeen 2008-10-31 12:32:29 EDT
Please see http://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/packages/xfsprogs/2.10.1/1.fc10/src/xfsprogs-2.10.1-1.fc10.src.rpm
the intention is to simply rebuild that for RHEL5.

A set of commands to use the XFS filesystem, including mkfs.xfs.

XFS is a high performance journaling filesystem which originated
on the SGI IRIX platform.  It is completely multi-threaded, can
support large files and large filesystems, extended attributes,
variable block sizes, is extent based, and makes extensive use of
Btrees (directories, extents, free space) to aid both performance
and scalability.

Refer to the documentation at http://oss.sgi.com/projects/xfs/
for complete details.  This implementation is on-disk compatible
with the IRIX version of XFS.
Comment 1 Peter Lemenkov 2008-11-01 06:15:12 EDT
Why you BR /usr/include/uuid/uuid.h instead of e2fsprogs-devel?
Comment 2 Eric Sandeen 2008-11-02 19:17:30 EST
Good point; that was present in the 1.1 version of the package way back when, and I never noticed.

Comment 3 Chris Feist 2009-01-07 15:48:11 EST
I built this package on a 5.2 system and it builds.

Only a couple issues need to be resolved before I can approve it.

BuildRequires:  /usr/include/uuid/uuid.h

should be changed to:

BuildRequires:  e2fsprogs-devel

and rpmlint output:
xfsprogs.i386: W: unstripped-binary-or-object /lib/libhandle.so.1.0.3

otherwise I think everything else looks good.
Comment 4 Eric Sandeen 2009-01-07 15:56:18 EST
The BuildRequires issue is already fixed in rawhide.  I'll look into the stripped binary issue, thanks.

Comment 5 Eric Sandeen 2009-01-07 18:02:32 EST

should have both these issues fixed.

Comment 6 Chris Feist 2009-01-09 17:38:02 EST
Verified that things look good.
Comment 8 Eric Sandeen 2009-09-10 09:48:25 EDT
Chris, I think this can be closed now yes?  Since we've shipped it and all... not sure who's job that is.
Comment 9 Chris Feist 2009-09-10 14:32:00 EDT
Closing since this has been released.
