Bug Fix Advisory e4fsprogs bug fix and enhancement update

Advisory: RHBA-2010:0239-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2010-03-30
Last updated on: 2010-03-30
Affected Products: RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Enhanced e4fsprogs packages that fix a bug are now available.

The e4fsprogs packages contain a number of utilities for creating,
checking, modifying, and correcting inconsistencies in fourth extended
(ext4 and ext4dev) file systems. e4fsprogs contains e4fsck (used to repair
file system inconsistencies after an unclean shutdown), mke4fs (used to
initialize a partition to contain an empty ext4 file system), tune4fs
(used to modify file system parameters), and most other core ext4fs file
system utilities.

The e4fsprogs packages have been upgraded to upstream version 1.41.9 for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.5. These updated packages contain several bug
fixes over the previous version.

Important: These packages are now designed and intended to be installed
alongside the original e2fsprogs package in Red Hat Enterprise Linux. As
such, certain binaries in the e4fsprogs packages have been given new names.
For example, the utility that checks ext4 file systems for consistency has
been renamed to "e4fsck", thus allowing the original "e2fsck" program from
the e2fsprogs package to coexist on the same system.

These updated e4fsprogs packages also include a fix for the following bug:

* pygrub did not understand fourth extended (ext4) /boot partitions, and
so was unable to paravirtualize guest domains. e4fsprogs-devel and
ev4sprogs-libs packages are provided with this update for pygrub and other
applications that require the new ext4 capable e2fsprogs libraries.
(BZ#528055)

All users of e4fsprogs are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which resolve this issue.
