Updated system-config-lvm package that fixes several bugs is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The system-config-lvm utility enables users to configure logical volumes using a GUI.
- Previously, the system-config-lvm utility did not support thin logical volumes. As a consequence, previously supported volumes could not be managed. With this update, thin logical volumes are still not supported but do not block managing supported volumes.
- Prior to this update, the Logical Volume Management (LVM) GUI was not always displayed correctly when accessed over remote access. Consequently, the user could not initiate the GUI. A patch has been provided to fix this bug, and the LVM GUI is now displayed correctly as intended.
- Previously, when the ext3 Logical Volume (LV) partition was mounted and the user attempted to extend it online, the system-config-lvm utility tried to unmount ext3 and only after that to extend it. The underlying source code has been patched, and ext3 file systems can now be extended online using the command line tools without system-config-lvm trying to unmount it first.
Users of system-config-lvm are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes these bugs.
