Description stephen smart 2006-10-25 17:10:12 EDT
Description of problem: after installing fc6 dvd iso (both i386 and x86_64 -
both passed media check test and sha1sum), with xfs as root filesystem, system
fails to boot into OS, citing xfs errors.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 

How reproducible: extremely

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install using xfs filesystem
2. reboot
Actual results: after install using xfs as root filesystem. grub loads. kernel
loads. RH nash starts, lvm's found. "i/o error in filesystem ("dm-0") metadata
dev dm-0 block 0x770000000 ("xfs_trans_read_buf") error 5 buf count
4096"...fills screen until final lockup. tried xfs_repair which said bad
superblock and no good replacements.  drive works fine with fc4 and fc5 xfs as
root, also works fine with ext3 under fc6.

Expected results: fc6...

Additional info: all partitions removed before installation, drive works fine
under fc5 x86_64(both as xfs root, and as an xfs home dir). machine: tyan k8se
dual opteron 246,cheetah u160 scsi,adaptec u320 scsi,2gb hyperx ecc reg,geforce
7900 gtko - nothing overclocked. also tried dell inspiron 1100 notebook - same
results as below. no other partitions besides default ext2 boot, swap, and xfs
root. sorry if this is bad bug reporting - first time...

I have the same problem. I tried on multiple SATA drives using sata_via with
multiple DVD burners. SHA1SUM was ok prior to burn. I use XFS as my primary
filesystem for "/"; not ext3. My computer set-up is x86_64 but the steps to
reproduce are the same as above.

This bug appears to be a dupe of 212201

I have reproduced this problem twice using an install using PXE and HTTP on
1) A clean VMware server 'computer'.
2) A Toshiba laptop.

On both I got the same error messages as above when using XFS.
The only real difference is the block number that is presented.
