There are a small number of additional packages that need to be installed or upgraded along with e2fsprogs. These are kept in the same downloads directory as the Intel/WC e2fsprogs packages. The following steps are one way to update e2fsprogs:


cd $HOME

wget -r -np http://downloads.whamcloud.com/public/e2fsprogs/latest/el6/RPMS/x86_64/

cd $HOME/downloads.whamcloud.com/public/e2fsprogs/latest/el6/RPMS/x86_64/

sudo rpm -Uvh e2fsprogs-?.* e2fsprogs-libs-?.* lib*
