Description Michael Mol 2007-03-04 17:44:03 UTC
Description of problem:

When computer is rebooted, ext3 partition on external IEEE1394 drive is flagged
as unclean, and fsck checks the drive.  fsck reports that manual fsck is
necessary.  Manual fsck detects thousands of errors, totalling 14GB of bad
inodes and directories. (7GB first time, 7.4GB second time)  External drive is
mounted as my /home partition, so this is particularly painful.

How reproducible:

Every time I reboot. (Twice now.)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Shutdown through System->Shutdown
2. Power on machine
3. !Profit
Actual results:

System checks /dev/sda1 for errors, finds them, requires manual fsck.

"fsck -vy /dev/sda1" returns thousands of errors in most stages of the fsck process.

Expected results:

I would expect a clean bootup without hemorraging data.

Additional info:

Firewire drive is a 250GB hard drive in an external enclosure, connected to
Firewire PCI expansion card.

Comment 1 Michael Mol 2007-03-06 21:28:46 UTC
I'm sorry.  The problem wasn't what I thought it was.  Turns out, my Firewire
card went flaky the same day as I installed Fedora.  Switching the drive to
connect through USB fixed the problem.
