Bug Fix Advisory system-config-lvm bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2011:1036-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-07-21
Last updated on: 2011-07-21
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

An updated system-config-lvm package that fixes two bugs is now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The system-config-lvm package contains a graphical application for the
configuration of LVM logical volumes.

This updated system-config-lvm package includes fixes for the following bugs:

* A logical volume could have been specified as not being mounted in the
system-config-lvm GUI even though it actually was mounted, which prevented the
possibility of performing certain operations, such as volume resizing. This
update corrects this error so that the mount state of a volume is correctly
represented, and operations on the volume can be carried out as expected.
(BZ#672475)

* During the process of creating a new logical volume and ensuring that it
persists across reboots, the system-config-lvm application could have become
unresponsive and failed to create the appropriate /etc/fstab entry. This update
corrects this error so that the application no longer potentially hangs during
the process, and the /etc/fstab entry is successfully written. (BZ#672948)

All users of system-config-lvm are advised to upgrade to this updated package,
which resolves these issues.
