PostPosted: Sun 14 Oct 2007, 18:57    Post subject: FSCK errors pn boot  

pkay even when I started with pfix=ram and built a new pup_save I got the inode errors
trapping them they appear to start with 2 inode which state
deleted inode 6283 has zero dtime fix - yes
deleted inode 6284 has zero dtime fix - yes
which fixes that and breaks
then in Pass5 I get
Inode bitmap diff 6283 - 6284 fix - yes
which fixes that and breaks
Free count wrong group #3 fix - yes

I tried googling the initial error (zero dtime) and found this interesting exchange which seems to imply that a sync has to be forced prior to unmounting in order to flush memory mapped files.
Because of the way I work I would prefer to not perform an fsck on startup - but I can see that others might need this.
Is there a way to choose to NOT run it maybe with a boot setting barry, I would prefer that to just hacking the routine out of the initrd ?

http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?17123
21:12 < youpi> Mmm, ext2fs doesn't seem to have a S_startup_dosync() handler, is that intended ? I'm not sure it performs sync on shutdown
21:13 < youpi> I mean, if I call sync before halt for shutting my hurd box down, I have not error on reboot fsck
21:13 < youpi> else I have quite some
21:14 < tschwinge> youpi: I can confirm that behaviour.
21:14 < antrik> that would explain a lot...
21:14 < youpi> and between sync and halt, some process could write on the disk, so calling sync by hand isn't a solution
21:22 < antrik> well, someone claimed the hurd ext2fs is written in such a manner that the data on disk should be consistent at any time... if that's the case, maybe sync wasn't considered necessary, or something
21:23 < youpi> !
21:23 < youpi> yeah, data is consistent
21:23 < youpi> I've not noticed any data loss
21:24 < youpi> but deleted but memory-living inodes are not deleted on the disk
21:24 < youpi> "deleted but memory-living", I meant
21:26 < youpi> (hence the "deleted inode xxx has zero dtime" fsck correction)
21:28 < bing> youpi: ogi would be a great guy to ask this questoin of
21:28 < youpi> and what about memory-mapped files ?
21:28 < youpi> they need be flushed
21:34 < youpi> hum, sorry yet, ext2fs has one, coming from libdiskfs, but
21:35 < youpi> how is it that we still have errors ? Smile
21:36 < antrik> ?
21:38 < youpi> libdiskfs has a S_startup_dosync() which calls diskfs_sync_everything() in ext2, which should do the work
21:42 < antrik> ah, OK
Monday 07/17/2006 at 09:09 UTC, original submission:
14:57 <youpi> schlesix: the non-umounting file system on system halt is not easy
14:57 <youpi> because for now tasks are not all killed
14:58 <youpi> (that's why you get "deleted inode foo has zero dtime: try touch blip, mmap("blip");pause() &, rm blip, blip will be a deleted inode with zero dtime (because the program running mmap() is still alive when ext2fs gets killed)

I guess this is a bug. Gxine won't play any DVD I've tried. I installed mplayer but it is giving problems too. I moved the thread about that to here.

Flash, go into the setup in Gxine, change to 'expert' mode, and change the video output to 'Xshm'. See if that fixes it. It needs a restart after that.
