E2LABEL(8)                                             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).
