Description Falko Pilz 2005-05-03 06:28:40 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050317 Firefox/1.0.2

Description of problem:
it's nice that ext2online was added, but this tool could only enlarge mounted filesystem.
What about shrinking one?
resize2fs which is in the fedora versions of e2fstools*.rpm isn't in the EL rpms, but in the tool called ext2resize which meen to replace resize2fs (or be a rename) isn't also not in the both installed packages(s390 or s390x).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
e2fstools-1.35-7.1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
no one, because missing command

resize2fs was disabled for the initial RHEL-4 GA release because of last-minute
conflicts found with online resize.  Those have been fixed and resize2fs will be
reenabled in RHEL-4 U1.

resize2fs is still missing. AKAIK, right now there is no tool to shrink a fs on
RHEL 4.
 

Comment 3 Stephen Tweedie 2005-05-24 21:12:10 UTC
Correct; it will be reenabled in RHEL-4 U1, in package versions
e2fsprogs-1.35-12.1.EL4 or later.

Comment 4 richard lee 2006-04-11 14:01:53 UTC
when does RHEL-4 U1 get released?

Comment 5 Jay Turner 2006-04-11 16:29:39 UTC
U1 went out months and months ago.  U3 is now available via RHN so you should be
able to grab that and get the fix to the reported issue.
