E2LABEL(8)		    System Manager's Manual		    E2LABEL(8)

NAME
       e2label - Change	the label on an	ext2 filesystem

SYNOPSIS
       e2label device [	new-label ]

DESCRIPTION
       e2label	will  display  or  change  the	filesystem  label  on the ext2
       filesystem located on device.

       If the optional argument	new-label is not present, e2label will	simply
       display the current filesystem label.

       If  the	optional  argument new-label is	present, then e2label will set
       the filesystem label to be new-label.  Ext2 filesystem labels can be at
       most  16	 characters  long;  if new-label is longer than	16 characters,
       e2label will truncate it	and print a warning message.

       It is also possible to set the filesystem label using the -L option  of
       tune2fs(8).
