How about:
http://www.sysresccd.org/

This has xfsprogs 3.1.2 and kernels 2.6.32.16 and 2.6.34.1 in version 1.5.8 of the CD according to the changelog.

Cheers,
Stu.

Updating the OS takes me a day or two for the whole cluster and all
the user programs. If you're pretty sure that will fix the problem,
I'll go for it tomorrow. I'd appreciate it very much if you could let
me know if Centos 5.4 is recent enough that it will fix the problem.


Alternatively simply boot the system from a live CD with a recent
kernel to do the resize.

I will note that I've grown the filesystem several times, and while I
recall having to unmount and remount the filesystem each time for it
to report its new size [...]

This definitely should not happen. After using xfs_growfs, the
filesystem appears immediately bigger.

Hi Emmanuel,

I think the Live CD is a great suggestion. I was just thinking though. do you 
know of a Live CD that has XFS utilities on it? From what I've seen, I've had 
to install XFS utilities after installing the OS, which I don't think one can 
do with a live CD. I can look, but if you know of one, that would probably save 
some digging.

thanks,

Eli
