Bug Fix Advisory e4fsprogs bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2013:1789-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2013-12-05
Last updated on: 2013-12-05
Affected Products: RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated e4fsprogs packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The e4fsprogs packages contain a number of utilities for creating, checking,
modifying, and correcting inconsistencies in fourth extended (ext4 and ext4dev)
file systems. e4fsprogs contains e4fsck (used to repair file system
inconsistencies after an unclean shutdown), mke4fs (used to initialize a
partition to contain an empty ext4 file system), tune4fs (used to modify file
system parameters), and most other core ext4fs file system utilities.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, the resize4fs utility mishandled the resizing of an ext4 file
system to a smaller size. As a consequence, files containing many extents could
become corrupted if they were moved during the resize process. With this update,
resize4fs now maintains a consistent extent tree when moving files containing
many extents, and such files no longer become corrupted in this scenario.
(BZ#1033548)

Users of e4fsprogs are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
fix this bug.
