to the 2.2.6 generic kernel and rebuilt it. I have two Linux
partitions which I mount as /linux and /linux/usr (fstab entries are
"ro,noauto"). /linux/usr seems fine, but /linux has several
directories for which ls -l and stat return the error "invalid
Another problem is that if I reboot the system with the Linux
partitions mounted, the shutdown procedure can't sync the disks
("giving up," it says) including /, which is clearly a problem.
Am I doing something wrong or omitting some option? Or is the ext2fs
driver just funkly software?
