1.198.1. RHBA-2009:1613: bug-fix update


This update has already been released (prior to the GA of this release) as errata RHBA-2009:1613
An updated system-config-lvm package that fixes a bug is now available.
The system-config-lvm package contains a utility for configuring logical volumes via a graphical user interface.
This updated package fixes the following bug:
* in several non-English locales, clicking the Create New Logical Volume button in the Logical Volume Management GUI (system-config-lvm) caused a python error and did not present a Create New Logical Volume window as expected. This made it impossible to use system-config-lvm to create new logical volumes.
The Create New Logical Volume window includes a Filesystem combo box pop-up menu which has 'None' selected and displayed by default. The error above occurred on systems set to any locale which required non-ASCII characters to present the translated equivalent of the English 'None'. This includes locales such as Japanese (where the problem was reported in the field), Serbian and Slovak. With this update, the combo box pop-up menu has been corrected to enable the display of any UTF-8 character. In the affected locales the Create New Logical Volume window now appears and works as expected. (BZ#537022)
All system-config-lvm users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves this issue.

1.198.2. RHBA-2010:0267: bug fix update

Updated system-config-lvm packages that fix several bugs are now available.
system-config-lvm is a utility for graphically configuring logical volumes.
This update includes the following fixes:
* system-config-lvm started very slowly. In these updated packages, system-config-lvm uses caching for such information, which resolves this issue. (BZ#525116)
* system-config-lvm did not start correctly in some cases when a physical volume was created on a logical volume. In these updated packages, system-config-lvm contains fixes for this situation. (BZ#522200)
* system-config-lvm failed when scanning mirrored logical volume with corelog. In these updated package, system-config-lvm works correctly with such volumes.(BZ#516609)
* system-config-lvm failed to create volumes in a Japanese environment. In these updated package, system-config-lvm correctly translates strings from/to correct encoding. (BZ#515322)
* system-config-lvm corrupted data when used on a volume exported through iSCSI. In these updated packages, system-config-lvm refuses to work with volumes which are used if they are not mounted. (BZ#514268)
* system-config-lvm started extremely slowly when used over a slow network. In these updated package, the system-config-lvm progress bar is updated less frequently but is still fluent even on local displays.(BZ#502042)
* system-config-lvm lost mount attributes in /etc/fstab after a change of volumes. In these updated packages, system-config-lvm preserves all attributes from /etc/fstab.(BZ#475434, BZ#455945)
* system-config-lvm did not support ext4 file systems. In these updated packages, system-config-lvm supports ext4 file systems.(BZ#444525)
* system-config-lvm did not work correctly in the Oriya language when some numbers where written using their glyphs. In these updated packages, system-config-lvm uses Arabic numbers everywhere.(BZ#243646)
* system-config-lvm used extents as a default unit size for volumes. In these updated package, system-config-lvm uses MB, GB, or TB, depending on the size of volume. (BZ#217752)
Users are advised to upgrade to these updated system-config-lvm packages, which resolve these issues.
