fstransform availalbe Centos 8?

Post by mjz » 2021/01/20 18:41:33

I want to transform an xfs filesystem to ext4 and read about fstransform.
I see it was available from Centos 7 epel - will it be available for Centos 8?

TBH, I don't understand why. Simple package with only a couple of dependencies. Builds from Rawhide without any adjustments. Even --with man is not needed as it's taken care of in the specfile. Looks like nobody has filed a request in RHBZ yet. Uploaded here.

Though "without the need for backup" sounds like somewhat of an exaggeration.
CentOS 6 died in November 2020 - migrate to a new version!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
