Kernel panic: EXT2-fs panic

Kernel panic: EXT2-fs panic

Post by VA Bri » Thu, 21 Dec 1995 04:00:00



I'm running the August 1995 Infomagic distribution, kernel 1.2.8,
on a Gateway 486/66 with a pci bus and about 700 Mb hard disk.
We have had an identical kernel panic message 4 times:

   Kernel panic: EXT2-fs panic (device 3/3): ext2_write_inode: unable
   to read i-node block - inode=57233, block=229424

How can we prevent these panics?  Is this a physical io problem, or is
the fs hosed, and we need to reload or repair it?

Thank you.

This is exactly the same problem I have with my Promise VESA 4030VL-1
controller and Quantum Fireball 1.28GB disk.  I posted the problem about
three days ago and have had no response.  I thought it was just me, so
I'm "glad" to see you're having a problem too :-)

Does anybody out there have a clue on this?  Is it anything to do with
LBA?

I am not sure if I can give you an adequate resolution to your problem.

The error message means, in English: "I can not read a block on the hard
disk"

Perhaps you have a problem with a currupted hard disk?

In my personal experience with Linux, this particular message occurs when
I have a hard disk with a bad partition table. In other words, if I mess
with fdisk, and mess up the partition tabel, the next time I try to access
the partition, the kernel panics.

I have encountered this problem on disks which fscked perfectly (at least
before the resulting crash :-).  Once the system got a bit active, the
panic arose.  We finally found that a SCSI hard drive had an internal
terminator, but that this fact had not been marked, so we had too much
termination on the bus. We suspected termination after reformatting the
drive did not make the problems go away.  Get the SCSI Faq for the whole
scoop.

1. What is Kernel Panic: EXT2-fs panic (Device 3/65)

Help.  I tried to install Slackware 2.1 and just as setup tries to
create a boot disk for me, it gives me the following error

Kernel Panic: EXT2-fs panic (device 3/65): ext2_read_inode:
unable to read inode block - inode=12, block=6

Can someone explain this to me?

Where can I find a trouble shooting guide that explains these error
messages?
