Filesystem not clean after shutdown on an IBM Thinkpad 600E
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:41 EST
Description of problem:
When the machine is cleanly shut down and rebooted, the ext3 driver
complains about the filesystem state and restores the journal during init.
Cannot easily reproduce this, just happened after a clean test3
install, and a couple of times during test2, maybe after kernel or
selinux related updates IIRC.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use the laptop for a while
2. (Maybe upgrade/install the new kernel?)
Actual Results: Filesystem is not left in a clean sate when unmounted
Expected Results: No errors on boot after a clean shutdown
Also seen on my thinkpad 600, as if the 2.6 kernel isnt correctly
cache flushing and powering down the drive
I'm still seing this after updating to kernel-2.6.5-1.356
Also (noticed with the same batch of updates from 5/8), is it really
necessary to power off and spin down the hard disks on reboot?
I haven't noticed this spinning down before these updates and
certainly not with 2.4 kernels
... and with kernel-2.6.5-1.358 on a fresh FC2 install
this should be fixed now, as we flush just before the powerdown.
