get-e2uuid should use blkid instead of "tune2fs -l" to get filesystem UUID
Last modified: 2010-08-27 01:16:02 EDT
Description of problem:
Currently, get-e2uuid gets filesystem UUID via "tune2fs -l". However, this doesn't work for JBD(journaling block device): whenever you try to get uuid of a JBD, you get a error that tells "Filesystem has unsupported feature(s)". In another way, UUID could be gotten via blkid, for both JBD or filesystems such as ext2/3/4. So it would be better to replace "tune2fs -l" with "blkid" in the implementation of get-e2uuid.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. ><fs> mke2journal 1024 /dev/VG/jounal
2. ><fs> get-e2uuid /dev/VG/jounal
libguestfs: error: get_e2uuid: tune2fs: Filesystem has unsupported feature(s) while trying to open /dev/VG/jounal
Couldn't find valid filesystem superblock.
get-e2uuid should return UUID successfully for JBD
