Description Ben Galliart 2009-05-29 15:43:18 EDT
Description of problem:
mke2fs -O journal_dev creates invalid external journal

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Assuming available block devices sdb1 and sdc1
2. mke2fs -O journal_dev /dev/sdb1
3. mke2fs /dev/sdc1
4. tune2fs -o journal_data -j -J device=/dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc1
Actual results:
tune2fs returns:
tune2fs: Filesystem has unexpected block size
        while trying to open journal on /dev/sdb1

Expected results:
tune2fs 1.41.5 (23-Apr-2009)
Creating journal on device /dev/sdb1: done
This filesystem will be automatically checked every 36 mounts or
180 days, whichever comes first.  Use tune2fs -c or -i to override.

Additional info:
Problem is acknowledged as fixed in release notes for e2fsprogs 1.41.5.  I am able to confirm the problem is fixed by using 1.41.5 instead of the Fedora 11 provided mke2fs.

You just missed it ;)

* Wed Apr 22 2009 Eric Sandeen <sandeen@redhat.com> 1.41.4-8
- Fix support for external journals

Can you try the more recent e2fsprogs in F11?  (it should be tagged for F11 already...)

currentrelease, rawhide... it's all confusing right now :)  but anyway this should be fixed.
