Description Sebastian Vahl 2009-08-25 10:05:35 UTC
Description of problem: As noted in #517222 I was asked to file a bug against e2fsprogs. So here it is. 
During live image creation for x86_64 resize2fs is failing when there are too many packages installed. This is hard to describe but the current kickstart for F12Alpha succeeds. But when I'm adding some more packages it is failing.

The filesystem is already 786432 blocks long.  Nothing to do!

Comment 1 Eric Sandeen 2009-08-27 17:03:43 UTC
Can you attach or otherwise make available that resize-image-PzrdHC?

Or maybe better, if you can replicate this, can you attach the full livecd creation log as well as the resulting image?

Although I'll need to think about this a bit more... and I'm on vacation this week so will have to get back to it later.

I don't know how big the attachments could be so I've uploaded the gzip'ed image to my webspace: http://deadbabylon.de/files/resize-image-PzrdHC.gz

Comment 3 Eric Sandeen 2009-09-03 21:44:32 UTC

So fsck says we are using 535447 blocks currently:

F12-KDE-039-x86_: 84842/196608 files (0.1% non-contiguous), 535447/786432 blocks

and resize2fs -M tries to resize it to 534923, which is -smaller- :

Resizing the filesystem on /daten/LIVECD/tmp/imgcreate-dQzAbO/tmp-UsG6hL/ext3fs.img to 534923 (4k) blocks.

Ugh.  The minimum resize calculation is so full of voodoo & heuristics that this may be tough.

As a fallback, livecd-creator -could- go back to the ol' binary search for minimum...

But I'll see if I can sort this out.  Thanks for providing the image, that'll help a lot.

I think the attached patch would solve the problem.


Comment 5 Josef Bacik 2009-09-10 21:52:52 UTC
Yup, that patch fixes the problem.  I've committed the fix to rawhide.
