Description Accot, Johnny 1999-10-25 06:44:33 EDT
The new package e2fsprogs-1.15-5 in the RawHide release of
October 23rd is pretty dangerous...  For a reason that I
could not find so far, with the new package, the booting
process freezes in the "checking local filesystems" step. In
short I should see:

/dev/sda4: clean, 33523/1161216 files, 4618188/4642816
blocks
/dev/sdb1: clean, 3245/1048576 files, 421052/4192240 blocks
/dev/sdc1: clean, 4692/1048576 files, 1640610/4192240 blocks

and I had:

/dev/sda4: clean, 33523/1161216 files, 4618188/4642816
blocks
/dev/sdb1: clean, 3245/1048576 files, 421052/4192240 blocks

and the last fsck notice never appears (although the
filesystem is clean).  It seems to be independent of the
initscripts package and kernel versions.  Even removing sdc1
from the fstab does not solve the problem, so my guess is
that there is a problem in the parallelized fsck...
Downgrading the package to e2fsprogs-1.15-3 solves the
problems.

[Sorry for the poor information in that bug report, but the
problem happens too early in the booting process to allow me
to investigate further...]
Comment 1 Accot, Johnny 1999-10-27 10:06:59 EDT
Apparantly fixed in e2fsprogs-1.17..
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-10-27 11:57:59 EDT
... which should be in the current Raw Hide.
