RHBA-2008:0804 - Bug Fix Advisory
GFS bug fix update
Bug Fix Advisory
Updated GFS packages that fix various issues are now available.
The gfs-utils packages provide the user-space tools for mounting, creating
and using GFS file systems.
The updated gfs-utils packages apply the following bug fixes:
- the gfs_tool command using the lockdump argument would incorrectly report
an 'unknown mountpoint' error.
- using the gfs_tool with the gettune or df arguments would result in a
"Cannot allocate memory" error. gfs_tool now correctly allocates memory for
- a bug caused GFS to report incorrect file system sizes. GFS now reports
the actual file system size.
- the gfs_fsck command can now repair corruption caused by old versions of
the gfs_grow command.
All GFS users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
resolve these bugs.
Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.
