4.41. gfs-utils

Updated gfs-utils packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The gfs-utils packages provide various user-space tools necessary to mount, create, maintain, and test Global File Systems (GFS).

Bug Fix

Prior to this update, the gfs_fsck file system checker failed to detect "bad indirect block pointer" corruptions due to incorrect error paths. This update modifies the gfs_fsck error paths. Now, gfs_fsck detects and repairs corruptions as expected.
All users of gfs-utils are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
