Details

Updated e2fsprogs packages that fix several bugs and add various enhancements
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 ext2, ext3, and ext4 file systems. This includes
e2fsck (which repairs file system inconsistencies after an unclean shut down),
mke2fs (which initializes a partition to contain an empty file system), tune2fs
(which modifies file system parameters), and most of the other core file system
utilities.

These updated e2fsprogs packages include a number of bug fixes and enhancements.
