Description Miloš Komarčević 2004-05-02 10:57:07 EDT
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.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use the laptop for a while
2. (Maybe upgrade/install the new kernel?)
3. Reboot

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
Comment 2 Miloš Komarčević 2004-05-09 09:38:10 EDT
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
Comment 3 Miloš Komarčević 2004-05-22 05:22:33 EDT
... and with kernel-2.6.5-1.358 on a fresh FC2 install
Comment 4 Dave Jones 2004-06-14 21:10:24 EDT
this should be fixed now, as we flush just before the powerdown.
