Details

An updated gfs2-utils package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The gfs2-utils package provides the user-space tools necessary to mount, create,
maintain, and test GFS2 file systems.

This update fixes the following bug:

* On 32-bit x86 architectures, an attempt to check a large GFS2 file system
caused the fsck.gfs2 utility to enter an infinite loop, utilizing 100% of
available CPU resources. When run with the "-vv" option, the fsck.gfs2 command
would produce output similar to the following:

(pass1.c:1453) Already processed system inode 33121 (0x8161)

This update applies an upstream patch that prevents such infinite loop, and
large GFS2 file systems now successfully complete their file system check on
both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures. (BZ#675911)

All users of gfs2-utils are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
fixes this bug.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.
