Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 190347
find problem indicates filesystem issue, fsck does not repair problems
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:26:51 EST
Description of problem:
New clean install of FC5. Find reported a problem
[root@ws-ai ~]# find / -name "ipop*" -print
find: WARNING: Hard link count is wrong for /selinux: this may be a bug in your
filesystem driver. Automatically turning on find's -noleaf option. Earlier
results may have failed to include directories that should have been searched.
This appeared to a file system issue. So an fsck was run against the file
system. fsck reported block count and inodes count problems:
[root@ws-ai ~]# fsck -n -f -v
fsck 1.38 (30-Jun-2005)
e2fsck 1.38 (30-Jun-2005)
Warning! /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 is mounted.
Warning: skipping journal recovery because doing a read-only filesystem check.
Pass 1: Checking inodes, blocks, and sizes
Pass 2: Checking directory structure
Pass 3: Checking directory connectivity
Pass 4: Checking reference counts
Pass 5: Checking group summary information
Free blocks count wrong (24775172, counted=24775130).
Free inodes count wrong (26281629, counted=26281429).
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00: ********** WARNING: Filesystem still has errors **********
129379 inodes used (0%)
529 non-contiguous inodes (0.4%)
# of inodes with ind/dind/tind blocks: 7354/55/0

0 bad blocks

Attempts to run fsck to fix these problems fail. Reported problems persist
sometimes with different values.
System has been reloaded several times. Hard drive tests have been run and do
not show any problems with the harddrive which is a new 320GB sata drive.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC-5 on ws-ai
Intel Celeron 2.8ghz
WD3200JD-22KLB0 320gig SATA hard drive
[root@ws-ai ~]# uname -a
Linux ws-ai.ai.lan 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5 #1 Tue Mar 14 15:48:33 EST 2006 i686 i686
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Clean install of FC5
2. find command reports problems
3. fsck reports problems, repair pass does not fix problems
As described above.
find works correctly and fsck fixes problems found.

This looks like a kernel bug though. The component filesystem is only about bugs
in that respective package which contains a raw directory structure for a
Reassigning to proper component.
Read ya, Phil
