Description Mark van Rossum 2017-09-28 10:13:02 UTC
Mount errors are not really informative

I was trying to mount a partition (that turned out to be slightly corrupted) 
I used 
 > mount /dev/sdb5 /media/sdb5/
and got as reply:

> mount: /media/sdb5: mount(2) system call failed: Bad message.

/var/log/messages did point out that I needed to run e2fsck and after that all is fine.

The error message of mount is just weird.

Comment 1 Karel Zak 2017-10-02 11:32:08 UTC
This is because kernel uses EBADMSG errno for "Bad CRC detected" situation. 

I'll try to add something more human compatible :-) as output for this ugly errno to the upstream code. Fedora will be updated later.

Thanks!
