[linux-lvm] e2fsadm and resize2fs



Firstly, Thanks for bringing an LVM to Linux ! Much appreciated !

I have been trying to resize my lv's and fs's using e2fsadm v0.7 and
resize2fs v1.03. Some times it works and some times it doesn't. Have I
dome something wrong? 

I have tried to report my findings below.

Config:
kernel 2.2.10-ac12
lvm modules v0.6
lvm tools   v0.7B

# cat /proc/lvm 
LVM module version 0.6  (26/02/1999)

4k	any	No resizes worked for me with a block size
		of 4k. It seems that e2fsadm (regardless of fs block size)  always passes
		the the size in 'k' to resize2fs and resize2fs wants the number of blocks.

The main problem for me is the 4k block size issue. I also noticed that
sometimes the rounding of the increase/decrease of an lv to a PE boundary
is greater than the size of a PE.  

TIA
