Description jbj 2000-05-25 15:50:23 EDT
I think there is a bug in RH 6.2, because
I constantly have to e2fsck the RH 6.2
partition using RH 6.1. e2fsck wont fix
the ext2 partition upon boot. I previously did it
from a RH 6.1 system successfully. I dont
know what is wrong, but rhe system continues
to freeze and the only solution is to hardware
reset the computer. Now my RH 6.2 wont even start
up after I manaully did the e2fsck process. RH 6.2

Do you get any error messages?  What sort of problems
is the fsck finding?
Comment 2 jbj 2000-06-01 12:00:33 EDT
The RH 6.2 system often dies without ANY error messages. Upon next boot
e2fsck starts to repair the damaged filesystem, but the system freezes again
after finishing 99,7 percent of the e2fsck process. What is wrong ?


Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2000-08-07 01:34:53 EDT
We can't reproduce this here with any of our machines.
First, try the errata kernel RPM; if you have a PIII,
that could conceivably fix your problem. Aside from that,
it sounds like you might have some flaky memory or similar
hardware problems.
Comment 4 jbj 2000-09-03 19:21:48 EDT
The problem seems to disappear when I upgrade the system to a newer kernel.
Yes, I have a PIII. I have tested the memory extensively with no errors found.
