Description

LSAC(v2)
The e2fsprogs packages provide a number of utilities for creating, checking, modifying, and correcting any inconsistencies in the ext2 file systems. This update fixes the following bugs: * Due to a bug in the resize2fs program, the size of the ext3 file system created on a 16TB block device could not be modified. Consequently, the "device too big" error occurred. This bug has been fixed and file systems residing on 16T block devices can now be re-sized within the existing file system size limits. (BZ#701776) * Previously, the uuidd daemon (uuidd) wrote an incorrect PID on startup to the /var/lib/libuuid/uuidd.pid file. Consequently, the service utility showed the incorrect status of uuidd because the stored PID was not the PID of the running uuidd process. This bug has been fixed and the returned status of uuidd is now correct in the described scenario. (BZ#707433) Users of e2fsprogs are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
