Description Christopher Beland 2007-10-08 19:12:17 EDT
Today Fedora completely froze up, to the point where the Caps Lock key
did not function.  I found lots of errors in /var/log/messages from
this point in time; I'll put a copy in an attachment.  I previously
reported a similar Eeek in Bug 296641, but the concurrent symptoms
were different this time.

I rebooted, and then rebooted again using the Fedora 7 LiveCD.  I
checked the root filesystem (/dev/sda1) with fsck, but it claimed the
filesystem was clean.  I tried again forcing a check with -f, and a
number of filesystem errors were found.  (See attachment for output.)
It is somewhat alarming that these errors were not fixed during
journal recovery.

I am wondering whether there is a filesystem corruption bug which is
causing the kernel to misbehave, or if this damage is a result of the

This could be caused by failing hardware (disks / memory / power supply.)

Well, this laptop passed a memtest86 recently, and after running a self-check
today, smartctl finds no problems with the hard drive.  I'm not sure how to
detect trouble with the power supply.

I'm reviewing this bug as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt to
isolate current bugs in the Fedora kernel.


I am CC'ing myself to this bug and will try and assist you in resolving it if I can.

There hasn't been much activity on this bug for a while. Could you tell me if
you are still having problems with the latest kernel?

If the problem no longer exists then please close this bug or I'll do so in a
few days if there is no additional information lodged.
Comment 5 Christopher Beland 2008-01-14 15:00:30 EST
I haven't seen this particular problem since I filed this report, though I have
had kernel oopses occasionally.
Comment 6 Christopher Brown 2008-01-14 15:16:13 EST
Okay, I'll close INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Please re-open if it returns and thank you
for filing originally.
