commit e79a9395b382e831c125d000d2bf16ba4b6253d4
Author: Theodore Ts'o <tytso@mit.edu>
Date:   Sun Mar 31 20:34:24 2013 -0400

    tests: add more tests for off-line resizing
    Signed-off-by: "Theodore Ts'o" <tytso@mit.edu>

added several resize tets, most of which fail on ppc and/or s390.

For now the tests are commented out in the RHEL7 e2fsprogs-1.42.8 build because they are apparently not regressions - just to get it building.  But these are real flaws that need to be fixed soon.

Hi Eric,

from my testing on ppc64 e2fsprogs-1.42.8 directly from upstream works without any problems. Upstream version from git works as well. RHEL7 version obviously works as well. None of the tests included in that commit failed in my testing.

Unfortunately I was not able to test this on s390 yet.

Comment 3 Lukáš Czerner 2013-10-04 04:41:22 EDT
I do not really know where is a problem but I could not reproduce this on s390 either. What do you think Eric ?

Comment 4 Eric Sandeen 2013-10-04 14:26:13 EDT
Hm the rpm build does still fail for me:


there are only 2 small patches on the specfile, I don't think (?) either should matter.

The package is now being built properly with the tests enabled.

A few problems with endianess were found and fixed.

So closing it.
