Details

An updated system-config-lvm package that fix a bug is now available.

The system-config-lvm package contains a utility for configuring logical
volumes via a graphical user interface.

This updated package fixes the following bug:

* Recent updates to the GNU core utilities (coreutils) package included a
move of the readlink command from /usr/bin/readlink to /bin/readlink. The
Logical Volume Management utility was updated to reflect this move. On Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 5, however, readlink is still installed to
/usr/bin/readlink. As a consequence, system-config-lvm erroneously
presented mounted logical volumes as Not Mounted and, equally erroneously,
reported their "Mount Point when Rebooted" as "None". As well, when trying
to resize such a volume, the utility presented the following (also
erroneous) message:

Logical volume is not mounted but is in use. Please close all
applications using this device.

With this update, system-config-lvm running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5
once again looks for readlink at /usr/bin/readlink and, consequently,
reports the properties of mounted volumes correctly and allows re-sizing of
such volumes as expected. (BZ#579049)

All system-config-lvm users should upgrade to this updated package, which
resolves this issue.
