Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 166641
filesystem error during boot smp kernel after installing
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:12 EST
Description of problem:
After I've installing fc4 on my system (CPU=dual xeon 2,8 GHz RAM=4GB
MB=supermicro x6dh8 RAID 1=adaptec 2010S) I've got a lot of filesystem error
(ext2_xattr_get, bad block, no such file or directory, cannot execute binary
file) during any boot up of smp kernel.
I've tried to use ext2 and ext3 filesystems and no change appear.
No error with non-smp kernel
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I use kernel 2.6.11
boot up the system using smp kernel
Steps to Reproduce:
2.boot up the system using smp kernel (default)
3.see the filesystem errors
the system doesn't boot
There's a raid1 corruption fix in the latest kernel in updates-testing.
I suggest using that, and running fsck over your partitions.
I've installed kernel-smp-2.6.12-1.1435_FC4.x86_64.rpm and during boot I obtain
Assertion failure in dx_probe() at fs/ext3/namei.c:381:
Boot the UP kernel, and do the fsck first.
the FIRST action that I do is fsck -c
and my filesystem hasn't any error or badblock
And you still get the assertion ? Ok, Stephen needs to see this one I guess.
Could you please attach the _full_ oops information, including register dump etc?
Also, did you do a forced full fsck, using "fsck -f"? "fsck -c" won't force a
full check of an ext3 filesystem --- it will usually discover that the fs is
journaled and hence doesn't need fscking, and will skip the full consistency
check after performing any necessary journal replay.
2.6.14-1.1637_FC4 has been released as an update for FC4.
Please retest with this update, as a large amount of code has been changed in
this release, which may have fixed your problem.
This is a mass-update to all currently open kernel bugs.
A new kernel update has been released (Version: 2.6.15-1.1830_FC4)
based upon a new upstream kernel release.
Please retest against this new kernel, as a large number of patches
go into each upstream release, possibly including changes that
may address this problem.
