Trying to run a dump of any ext4 filesystem dies with a signal 8:

I -just- built the newer e2fsprogs in rawhide.

Can you retest?

Comment 2 Valdis Kletnieks 2011-09-26 20:44:07 UTC
Grabbed 1.42-0.3.WIP.0925.fc17 from koji, and that works fine, thanks.  You can probably close this one.

(Though I'm wondering how nobody else seems to have opened a bug on this, don't people back their systems up? ;)

Comment 3 Eric Sandeen 2011-09-26 20:50:46 UTC
Maybe not with dump ;)
