Advisory: RHBA-2011:1222-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A

Details

An updated lvm2 package that fixes a bug is now available for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 5.

The lvm2 package provides support for Logical Volume Management (LVM).

This updated lvm2 package fixes the following bug:

* When running the "lvconvert" command to convert a linear device to a mirror
with stripes, the "lvconvert" command entered an infinite loop.The problem
occurred if the number of needed extents was not divisible by the number of
areas. This has been fixed: the allocation is now properly rejected if the
number of extents is not divisible by the number of areas. (BZ#732006)

All users of lvm2 are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes
this bug.
