ongoing unexpected inconsistancy

25/07/2010 - 04:50 von Marty | Report spam
Hi all,
I upgraded suse 11.2 to 11.3. Everything went ok. File system ext4.
There are 4 partitions, one / , one /home and 2 other partitions for
user
data - /dev/sda5 - /dev/sda6 and /dev/sda7.

Everything was working ok on 11.2 and for a few days on 11.3.

For 3 days now, after every boot or reboot, the system stops during boot
and
tells me that all 3 user partitions have unexpected inconsistencies, and
that I have to run fsck manually. The root partition is fine.

I provide my root password for login and run 'fsck /dev/sda5' (same for
6
and 7) , no error message then (0.1%, 0.2 and 0.9% non-contiguous), I
reboot
with Control-D and the system boots fine.

On the next boot or reboot the same thing.

I doubt that the hard drive is damaged, it's fairly new.

I haven't found a solution anywhere, any advice is appreciated.

Many thanks, Marty

how did you do that? Zypper dup?

Indeed, strange, except for the case that the system does not shut down the
partitions correctly.

I would try two things:
1) run memtest to see that the memory is OK - this may give strange results
2) run a live distro (Suse, knoppix,..) and do a full fsck

If everything breaks...install new with just formatting the / partition.
