Bug Fix Advisory e2fsprogs bug fix and enhancement update

Advisory: RHBA-2010:0868-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2010-11-10
Last updated on: 2010-11-10
Affected Products: RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated e2fsprogs packages that fix various bugs are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The e2fsprogs packages contain a number of utilities that create, check, modify,
and correct inconsistencies in second extended (ext2) file systems. This
includes e2fsck (which repairs file system inconsistencies after an unclean
shutdown), mke2fs (which initializes a partition to contain an empty ext2 file
system), tune2fs (which modifies file system parameters), and most of the other
core ext2fs file system utilities.

This update fixes the following bugs:

* Prior to this update, a corrupted journal on an ext3 file system may not have
been properly repaired by the e2fsck utility. This was caused by the fact that
the utility was unable to detect or repair the problem when the journal appeared
to be a sparse file, which led to a journaling failure and file system shut
down. With this update, the process_journal_block() function has been adjusted
to mark sparse journal as invalid, and e2fsck utility now works as expected.
(BZ#621836)

* Under certain circumstances, the blkid utility may have produced an empty
output when the /etc/blkid/blkid.tab file contained multiple stale entries with
the same label. Consequent to this, an attempt to check the file system or mount
it may have failed, preventing the system from booting. This error has been
fixed, and the underlying source code has been modified to ensure that blkid
always returns the expected result. (BZ#640584)

All users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these
issues.
