Description Travis L 2004-03-06 01:34:53 EST
I installed Fedora Core 1 normally.  Everything worked without a
problem.  Then I tried to update it, but there were some problems with
it, so I downloaded the updates for up2date and up2date-gnome (I
believe that's the name of the 2nd file) and installed those
seperately from the automatic updates.  I downloaded the first package
entirely which was 
Xfree86-100dpi-fonts-4.3.0-55.i386.rpm  The computer worked fine for
the rest of the night.

When I restarted the computer in the morning, it would not work.  It
starts to load up, to where it mentions the host files and then the
screen changes to text mode and gives the error message:

fsck.ext3 for device LABEL=/ exited with signal 11.

So far I haven't even found out what signal 11 means.  Also, the
harddrive that this resides on has a 2 seperate partitions (1 is
WinXP) and the 2nd is just an empty drive.  Both of them are Fat32 and
are working.
Comment 1 Thomas Woerner 2004-03-08 09:15:23 EST
I need more information:

- hard dist partition list (fdisk -l)
- /etc/fstab
- /boot/grub/grub.conf (without password, if any)

Comment 2 Travis L 2004-03-08 13:41:44 EST

fdisk -l gave the following readout:

/dev/sda1    /mnt/memstick         autofs, user 0 0

When I tried to go to /boot/grub/grub.conf, It said there was no 
directory named grub.  However, I went into the bootloader, and this 
is what is has if it helps:

root  (hd0,2)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi rhgb
initrd /intrd-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl.img

Thank for responding :-)

Comment 3 Thomas Woerner 2004-03-10 09:09:48 EST
Please send me the output of "tune2fs -l LABEL=/". /dev/hda5 is root
(LABEL=/), right?
Can you generate a core file of "e2fschk LABEL=/" for me? You have to
use the rescue boot for this.
Comment 4 guolin 2004-04-02 21:51:41 EST
Created attachment 99083 [details]
fsck fails with signal 11 at 1st time, 2nd run succeed.

The problem is quite "stable", It happens on each machines I upgraded from
RedHat 8.0 to Fedora Core 1. All other partitions with "LABEL=/", "LABEL=/usr",
"LABEL=/0", "LABEL=/alexa" works fine, except this "LABEL=/var" (/dev/hda10).
Comment 5 Thomas Woerner 2004-04-06 11:43:13 EDT
I'd need the following:

- e2fsprogs version (rpm -q e2fsprogs)
- tune2fs -l LABEL=/var
