The gfs2-utils packages provide the user-level tools necessary to mount, create, maintain and test
If gfs2 is used as the root file system, the first boot attempt will fail with the error message "
fsck.gfs2: invalid option -- a". To work around this issue:
- Enter the root password when prompted.
- Mount the root file system manually:
mount -o remount,rw /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 /
- Edit the /etc/fstab file from:
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 / gfs2 defaults 1 1to
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 / gfs2 defaults 1 0
- Reboot the system.
Note, however that using
GFS2as the root file system is unsupported.
