Name        : gfs2-utils
Product     : Fedora 22
Version     : 3.1.8
Release     : 2.fc22
URL         : https://fedorahosted.org/cluster/wiki/HomePage
Summary     : Utilities for managing the global file system (GFS2)
Description :
The gfs2-utils package contains a number of utilities for creating,
checking, modifying, and correcting any inconsistencies in GFS2
file systems.

Update Information:

This updates gfs2-utils to version 3.1.8 which includes the following changes:

- Performance improvements in fsck.gfs2, mkfs.gfs2 and gfs2_edit savemeta.
- Better checking of journals, the jindex, system inodes and inode 'goal' values in fsck.gfs2
- gfs2_jadd and gfs2_grow are now separate programs instead of symlinks to mkfs.gfs2.
- Improved test suite and related documentation.
- No longer clobbers the configure script's --sbindir option.
- No longer depends on perl.
- Various minor bug fixes and enhancements.

This update also relaxes the strictness with which fsck.gfs2 checks i_goal values to fix an issue where good inodes could be flagged as containing errors.

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use
su -c 'yum update gfs2-utils' at the command line.
