1.168.1. RHBA-2011:1036: system-config-lvm bug fix update
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.
