I've been using xfs on linux lvm for quite a while now without any problems on both i386 and alpha systems. I've recently install this on a sparcstation I want to use as a file server and didn't run into any problems until I tried to grow a filesystem. when I try xfs_growfs I get this error:

xfs_growfs /usr
xfs_growfs: cannot determine geometry of filesystem mounted at /usr: Invalid argument

Any ideas on why this is happening or a way around it?


xfs kernel from cvs 2.4.20-xfs
xfsprogs from cvs (same as kernel)
Sparcstation 5, ide disks
