Description Gerald Britton 2000-12-21 11:26:33 UTC
When running e2fsck on a v1 filesystem, the error field is left in an
uninitialized state
which will then be falsely interpreted as an error in the filesystem.

Comment 1 Stephen Tweedie 2000-12-21 23:45:29 UTC
I can't reproduce this using the current e2fsprogs on
ftp.uk.linux.org:/pub/linux/sct/fs/jfs/e2fsprogs/.  Could you see if that helps?
 If not, a little more detail on the versions you are using here would help.

Comment 2 Stephen Tweedie 2001-01-12 13:43:41 UTC
I found a place where kernel journal initialisation was not correctly
initialising all journal fields.  Should be fixed in ext3-0.0.5e.
