e2label will display or change the filesystem label on the ext2, ext3, or ext4 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.
e2label was written by Theodore Ts'o ([email protected]).
e2label is part of the e2fsprogs package and is available from http://e2fsprogs.sourceforge.net.
