Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 207117
FC6 Test 3 fails to shutdown cleanly with IBM ThinkPad R51
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:02:30 EDT
Description of problem:
First of all, my apologies I haven't used Red Hat / Fedora in years. Anyway, I
decided to give Fedora Core 6 Test 3 a go and installed it in my laptop, which
is an IBM ThinkPad R51.
This is a very much stock install - I just clicked through the installation
process without changing default. After finishing the install I applied all the
updates pup offered me.
It seems that every single time something goes wrong during shutdown. During
every startup the boot sequence tells me
EXT3-fs: INFO: recovery required on readonly filesystem.
EXT3-fs: write access will be enabled during recovery.
kjournald starting. Commit interval 5 seconds
EXT3-fs: dm-0: orphan cleanup on readonly fs
ext3_orphan_cleanup: deleting unreferenced inode 8307245
ext3_orphan_cleanup: deleting unreferenced inode 8307252
EXT3-fs: dm-0: 2 orphan inodes deleted
EXT3-fs: recovery complete.
EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with ordered data mode.
... where the number and location of unreferenced inodes differ every time.
hdparm reports that drive write cache is on. Maybe FC6 shuts the system down so
fast that buffers doesn't get flushed to disk? :-) Anyway, this very same laptop
has worked fine in the past with CentOS 4.4, (K)Ubuntu Breezy 5.10 and (K)Ubuntu
Dapper 6.06, so this problem has something to do with FC6 and its init scripts /
kernel / you decide.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 6 Test 3 with all the current updates.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC6 Test 3 to IBM ThinkPad R51.
2. Shutdown and reboot.
3. See it complaining about dirty filesystem.
